Presented by: Richard Mellitz Equalization is essential for optimizing channel performance. How can SI engineers account for it? Enter effective return loss (ERL). First introduced in IEEE 802.3cd by Samtec distinguished Engineer Rich Mellitz, ERL provides a figure of merit for signal channels in equalized systems. However, what really is ERL? How can SI engineers leverage this metric? Please join Rich Mellitz as he answers these and related questions in Samtec’s next episode of gEEk spEEk.
