Read the award-winning paper that details issues and solutions related to bringing 4th generation serial links into production.
Large systems moving thousands of higher data rate (12 to 25 Gbps) channels into production encounter a variety of issues not seen in the first three generations of serial links. This paper describes issues and solutions recently discovered in bringing 4th generation products into the mainstream. Solutions are substantiated using simulation, field solution, VNA/TDR/Scope measurement, and photomicrography of fabricated structures. Issues and solutions arise and are hence detailed in two broad categories: design and manufacturing.
