Linear Electro-Optical Interface: Standardization, Design Principles & Silicon Correlation

August 23 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am UTC+0

Presenter Names: Priyank Shukla and Ruben Sousa (Synopsis)

Abstracts: This tutorial delves into the world of 112G/224G linear electro-optical links, a rapidly growing technology for next-generation PCIe and Ethernet standards. We’ll explore the motivations behind this shift, providing a clear understanding of the benefits of linear electro-optical interfaces. The tutorial dives into the ongoing standardization efforts for enabling these 112G links, equipping attendees with the knowledge to navigate this evolving landscape. We’ll then delve into the specific implications of linear specifications on various stakeholders within the industry. This includes electrical SerDes designers, optical component designers, and system integrators, ensuring everyone is up-to-speed on the technical considerations. Finally, the tutorial will share insights from our silicon implementation and design correlation for 112G electro-optical interfaces. This practical knowledge will be instrumental for those looking to build, integrate, or deploy these systems.
