Webinar Overview

The move to PAM4 modulation presents validation and debug challenges.  During our talk, we’ll discuss how real-time oscilloscope-based solutions can address those challenges by means of advanced equalization and digital clock recovery, effective error rate analysis, and offline analysis capabilities.   We’ll discuss how to:

Overcome Low PAM4 Signal-to-Noise Ratio and Channel Effects
Identify and troubleshoot Bit Error Rates
Isolate random/burst error and other events of interest
