Pre and Post FEC BER as FEC Matrix size Reduces

As digital transmission speeds increase, designers use various techniques to improve the signal-to-noise ratio at the receiver output. One such technique is the Decision Feedback Equalizer (DFE) scheme, commonly used in high-speed Serializer-Deserializer (SerDes) circuits to mitigate the effects of channel noise and … Read More

Mobile device designers face the dilemma of reducing power and at the same time maintaining or increasing performance. Consumers will not tolerate increased battery life at the expense of performance. If it were otherwise, designers could simply dial back clock rates. Without this simple cure, the best way to reduce power for… Read More
