January 30 to February 2, 2012


Santa Clara Convention Center


Santa Clara, Calif.

Panel Discussions: 

Monday, January 30
4:45 p.m.6:00 p.m., Ballroom E/F

Modern communication systems employ complex receivers that open the "closed EYE". Closed Eyes are difficult to specify so standards bodies have incorporated reference equalizers to measure the receiver stress in terms of an open EYE. Altera's Mike Li will join this panel to explore why differences must exist between the reference EQ and efficient silicon implementation.

Tuesday, January 31
3:45 – 5:00 p.m., Ballroom G

Altera's Daniel Chow will participate on this panel, which will feature engineers who characterize components that run at today's highest speeds. Panelists will share their experiences at making measurements and how they combine instruments to gain as much information as possible about a signal or system.

TechForum Tutorial Session:

Monday, January 30
9:00 a.m.12:00p.m., Ballroom F

This TechForum tutorial will review the latest design and verification developments, as well as architecture, circuit, and deep submicron process (40 nm, 28 nm) technology advancements for high-speed links, with an emphasis on jitter and signal integrity for up to 10- to 32-Gbps high-speed I/Os (e.g., GbE (10G, 100G), CEI/OIF (11G, 25-28G), OTN/OTU5 (32 G), Fibre Channel (16G, 32G), and PCI Express (8G, 16G)).
