56 G PAM 4 Next Generation Transceiver Technology:
High-speed serial transceivers form the backbone of today’s large-scale data centers, cloud computing, and wireless applications that require increased bandwidth at lower power and minimum cost per bit. Next-generation transceiver technology is incorporated into the Stratix® 10 family. The dual-mode transceivers are capable of 56 Gbps PAM4 and 30 Gbps NRZ modulation enabling the next generation high speed interconnects while minimizing insertion loss and cross-talk at terabit data rates. The new standard supports both optical and copper interfaces for applications including chip-to-chip, backplane and direct attach cable.
