Advanced Testing Challenges at 32GBaud Pam4 with PCIe 6.0
PCI Express 6.0 doubles Gen5’s data rate achieving a maximum data throughput of 64GT/s. It does this without needing to increase the bandwidth of the Gen5 channel by utilizing PAM4, multi-level signaling which allows PCIe 6.0 to transmits two data bits per symbol. Nevertheless, PAM4 ushers new challenges in testing at the physical layer and new measurements will need to be made to PCIe Gen6 silicon such as SNDR and multi-edge jitter. This session will help you better understand some of the key challenges of moving from NRZ (non-return-to-zero) to PAM4 technology along with new measurement requirements for transmitter and receiver testing. This seminar leverages test data from Keysight’s pathfinding efforts supporting the development of PCIe Express 6.0 technology along with similar signaling approaches used in the IEEE 802.3 and CEI 4.0 standards.
Next Gen Development in Type-C Ecosystem
This session will cover the latest updates in the Type-C Ecosystem that includes USB, DP, and Thunderbolt.
Physical Layer Validation Challenges of Characterizing 100 Gbps/lane Designs
This session will be a practical discussion of IEEE 802.3ck (100Gbps/lane) physical layer conformal testing for both Tx and Rx. 100G silicon is emerging from the early specifications and a world of simulation. This track will help bridge the gap between simulation and physical layer evaluation of SERDES design and conformance testing.
Solving Your Forward Error Correction Problems
Forward Error Correction (FEC) can effectively eliminate data loss (frame loss) in systems with moderately high Bit Error Rates (BER) of 1E-4 or more. However, in real systems, errors sometimes occur in bursts and can lead to FEC failure and non-zero Frame Loss Ratio (FLR). This presentation will demonstrate a real-time oscilloscope combined with FEC-aware tester. This solution will be shown to trigger on, capture and debug burst errors, or uncorrectable FEC events that can lead to unexpected frame loss in 400GBASE-DR4 and 400GBASE-SR8 devices.
