How fast is too fast?
In the world of high-performance computing, data centers, artificial intelligence and related topics, the answer is always the same. How fast can we go? Theoretically, I guess the fastest is the speed of light. In reality, data can travel at about 112 Gbps PAM4 right now with 224 Gbps data rates coming.
This topic was all the rage at DesignCon 2023 last week in Santa Clara, CA. A quick search of the technical papers submitted shows at least six technical sessions focused on 224 Gbps transceivers, connector selection, electrical interfaces, and optical modules and systems.
Fast, 224 Gbps PAM4 interconnections are becoming a reality!
Obviously, DesignCon 2023 papers, presentations, webinars, demos, and the like are available for post-event, on-demand viewing. SamtecMake sure to stay tuned to the Samtec blog for our contributions, including this video/blog about our first 224 Gbps PAM4 live product demonstration.
What if you couldn’t travel to DesignCon 2023? Where else can you learn about high-speed interconnections?
Webinar: The Future of High-Speed Interconnects
More attention had been given in recent years to developing connectors able to carry the vast amount of high-speed signal and power data in electronic systems. Complex interconnection systems are now being developed to signal standards such as PAM-4.
DesignNews in conjunction and Samtec, Molex, and Mill-Max will be shedding some light on this very topic. The upcoming webinar The Future of High-Speed Interconnects will comment on some of the design challenges as well as design techniques to address these concerns.
Samtec’s own Scott McMorrow and Augusto Panella from Molex will lead the discussion to chart the future of next-gen, 224 Gpbs interconnections. Attend this webinar and learn:
- The current state-of-the-art in high-speed interconnections
- Some of the challenges facing future developers of interconnects
