112 Gbps PAM4 Demonstrator - DesignCon 2022 - Samtec - Full Length

This live demonstration from DesignCon 2022 shows six of Samtec's 112 Gbps PAM4 connector systems. It includes board-to-board connector sets, as well as two Samtec Flyover® cable systems. One is a mid-board to cable backplane configuration, and the other is mid-board to front panel. Each board has four Alphawave AlphaCORE Multi-Standard SerDes. For each connector set, the Alphawave SerDes is transmitting 112 Gbps PAM4 PRBS data, and we’re receiving and analyzing the signal performance on the other board. These six connector systems are on two boards. The two boards are communicating bidirectionally at 112 Gbps PAM4. All of the cable assemblies use Samtec Eye Speed ultra-low skew twinax.
