The Case of the Closing Eyes is an opportunity for DesignCon attendees to learn about the challenges of new communications system design methodology from two distinct angles; the semiconductor industry and the test & measurement industry. The area of discussion is about bringing new technology to the communications industry using PHY layer validation techniques that are conclusive enough for widespread, error-free adoption. Participants will have an opportunity to engage in the open panelist debates and take insightful information back to their design labs.

Intended Audience

A good understanding of PAM4 and high speed communications test.
