DesignCon is an annual conference that brings together the top minds in electronic engineering and communications. It has been running for the past 22 years in the heart of Silicon Valley in Santa Clara.
For DesignCon 2018, VIAVI will be represented by our Director of Strategy for Lab & Production, Paul Brooks, Ph.D. He will be on a panel Thursday, February 1st covering the new challenges ahead with 400G test and measurement. Also on the panel, David Rogers of Teledyne LeCroy. Both Paul and David are representing the Ethernet Alliance.
From Design Con: 400G Ethernet is now close to standardization and we are already seeing successful & exciting results from early field trials. Many of the novel aspects of 400G Ethernet pose significant test and measurement challenges and this presentation highlights the revolutionary aspects of 400G technology and how it drives new concepts in test and measurement. From PAM-4 modulation in the electrical and optical domain to the challenges of validating margin in FEC based links the presentation explores how the T&M community within the Ethernet Alliance is ready to take 400G to widespread and pain-free deployment.
The key takeaway will be an introduction to new tools and practices to ensure successful design and validation of the emerging high-speed Ethernet products.
In the meantime, please take a look at the videos and materials listed at right covering the 400G topic and exciting news on the burgeoning ecosystem of players (many of whom will be at DesignCon).
