DesignCon 2024 recently highighted the ongoing trend for sending high-speed data over twinax cable assmblies. As AI/ML, HPC, data center and computing system architectures evolve, twinax cable assmeblies can be found in ASIC adjacent or near chip applications as well as solutions routing front-panel to front-panel.
PCI Express® technology also is playing a key role in GPU-to-GPU communications as AI clusters become larger and disaggregated. Connecting GPU-based AI systems does and will require more twinax solutions. Implementation will leverage standard and custom high-speed twinax cable assemblies supporting PCIe® 5.0/6.0 throughput.
Testing PCIe 5.0/6.0 and IEEE 802.3ck Cable Assemblies
Due to these on-going trends, Samtec and Rohde & Schwarz are sponsoring an upcoming webinar entiled PCIe 5.0 / 6.0 and IEEE802.3ck Cable Test – Signal Integrity, Performance Parameters, and Automation.
This webinar is intended for engineers who work on high-speed digital design and test. In particular, our technical experts will discuss PCIe 5.0/6.0 and IEEE802.3ck cable test focussing on SI, performance parameters and automation. PAM4 modulation especially is very sensitive to noise, crosstalk, and futher disturbances. Attendees will also learn how basic SI paramters such as IL, RL, NEXT, FEXT, and more affect twinax cable assembly test and performance.
Additionally, attendees will learn easy steps to effectively characterize and de-embed twianx cable assembly test fixtures. Finally, our techncial experts will demonsrate a complete solution of test automation from Rohde & Schwarz including VNAs, multiport switch matrices, and application software. Practical examples and demonstrations illustrate PCIe 5.0 / 6.0 and IEEE802.3ck cable test made easy, fast, and reliable.
