Next-gen communication platforms must manage the unrelenting high-speed data streams from cellular network, basestations, SATCOM and other wireless communications applications. Pentek has developed clever solutions to pinpoint and explore multiband signals, optimize performance and data movement, increase channel count and board-level synchronization.
Switched serial fabric systems connect devices together to support multiple simultaneous data transfers. The raw speed of serial fabrics is governed by three factors: the serial bit clock frequency; the channel coding efficiency; and the number of lanes or parallel bit streams ganged together in the interface. This handbook helps system designers compare and contrast different types of serial fabrics to narrow down the best available links and protocols for their high-speed embedded system application.
