Cadence Design Systems

Adaptive equalization has been around long enough that we're beginning to think of it as "invisible infrastructure." In reality, it's a complex control system that works in concert with clock data recovery - another complex control system. Although the equalizers themselves may share certain features that are common among different serdes, each adaptive system is unique. The function of the system and its controls often remain hidden to the end user. This talk will take an objective look at how these functions are implemented in a 32 Gbps IBIS-AMI model.
