Upgrading a 1-Gbps System to Support Data Rates of 4-Gbps
The paper analyzed the possibility of using a fixed equalizer to upgrade an existing 1-Gbps system to operate at 4-Gbps. Included were the steps to define an IC specification and verify link performance through simulation. A actual test chip was used to verify the results and hardware implementation considerations were discussed. The paper demonstrates the applicability of upgrading established systems leveraging advanced compensation techniques to support higher data rates.
