Santa Clara, CA
United States


The adoption of optical and electrical PAM4 technology goes mainstream with the 400G/200G/100G/50G Ethernet standards in 802.3bs and 802.3cd.  The characterization, compliance and troubleshooting of signals in these PAM4 standards are very different from earlier NRZ PAM2-based standards.  During this session, designers and test engineers will learn how to make the measurements needed in the optical PHY Layer including TDECQ evaluation techniques.Cost: Free, but registration is required.Lunch will be provided.Agenda9:00 – 9:30AM: Introduction, Coffee & Check-in9:30 - 11:00 AM: First Part - Interactive LectureEthernet Networking Market Trends & TechnologiesLet’s talk about standards and where PAM2 & PAM4 fitTesting PAM4:   - Mask Test – rethinking hit ratios   - What is TDEC and how is TDECQ different? 11:00 – 11:15AM: Break11:15 AM - 1 PM: Second Part - Hands On + Lunch Intro to Tektronix’s Rx & Tx Solutions for PAM4:   - Demonstration of PAM4 Tx Testing on DPO70000SX Oscilloscope   - Demonstration of PAM4 Tx Testing on DSA8300 Oscilloscope
