The requirements of emerging wireline communication systems for higher data rates is driving the need for SerDes systems to operate with higher order modulation schemes such as PAM3 and PAM4.

SerDes systems architectures and adaptation algorithms need to change for achieving this mandatory performance. Accurate system-level models of the physical layer including impairments such as jitter, crosstalk, and non-linearity are required in the study and development of innovative architectures.

In this presentation, you will learn how to model PAM3 and PAM4 SerDes systems using measurement data and data sheet specifications, and integrate smarter adaptation and optimization algorithms.




  • SerDes analysis for PAM3 and PAM4 modulation
  • Bottom up modeling of analog impairments such as crosstalk, jitter, non-linearity
  • System-level simulation including global optimization algorithms
  • IBIS-AMI model generation for channel verification

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
