Xilinx Demonstrates Virtex UltraScale+ GTM Transceiver Driving 58G PAM4 over Legacy 100G Copper at XDF Silicon Valley 2018

The Virtex® UltraScale+™ 58G PAM4 FPGA is capable of transmitting and receiving data over the most challenging of channels. In this live demonstration at XDF Silicon Valley, 58Gb/s was transmitted over 5m of QSFP28 Direct Attach Copper cabling and received by the GTM PAM4 transceiver. After this strenuous channel and being run at the maximum rate of the transceiver there were 0 post-FEC errors over multiple days of running live at XDF.
