DesignCon 2019 – Xilinx 112G PAM4 and Samtec NovaRay Cable assemblies

At DesignCon129, Xilinx and Samtec show the reality of 112G cabled backplanes. With 112G PAM4 signals generated, received and validated by the next generation Xilinx 112G PAM4 test device and the Samtec NovaRay cable assemblies carrying the data, this video shows realistic backplane lengths running at rates that are infeasible over traditional PCB interconnects.
