Data center traffic is growing explosively with the spread of cloud networking services. As a result, new high-speed standards (IEEE, OIF-CEI, IBTA) adapted PAM4 as a means for speeding up processing and communications between servers and networks to increase transfer speeds without raising symbol rates. This seminar specifically focuses on the Bit Error Rate (BER) analysis and receiver jitter tolerance test of PAM4 signals and components at 200/400G. An actual 64G PAM4 BER test procedure and test data will be shown, with a discussion on the challenges of PAM4 BER measurements and how to overcome them.
