This session will be a practical discussion of IEEE 802.3ck (100Gbps/lane) physical layer conformal testing for both Tx and Rx. 100G silicon is emerging from the early specifications and a world of simulation. This track will help bridge the gap between simulation and physical layer evaluation of SERDES design and conformance testing.


1. BERT and calibration for exceptionally narrow VEC targets
2. Tx evaluation of VEC, SNDR, EOJ, and relevant measurements for the electrical conformance with oscilloscopes
