Efforts are underway to define 100Gbps channels to support simpler, lower cost versions of 100G, 200G, and 400G Ethernet as well as enable 800G Ethernet links. This paper sets out to design, build, and test a C2M and various DAC configurations to give concrete evidence on what system designers can expect going forward for 100Gbps channels. The paper will include details of the analyzed channel impairments that needed to be addressed and some of the methodologies employed to develop a sound solution that can support these next generation physical solutions for the channel, connectors, and cables.


100Gbps C2M and DAC channels can reliably be achieved if certain considerations are taken into account in regards to channels, connectors, and cables.
