Low complexity transceivers
With the steep increase in aggregate I/O bandwidth demands, higher per lane bandwidths are required over existing channels. The resulting increase in channel loss can be overcome in multiple ways; all of which lead to more equalization complexity. In past projects, innovative timing recovery schemes where used to drive simpler equalizers at the receiver [MusahJSSC14, MusahPatent19, VenkatramPatent17]. In this research thrust, we investigate new transceiver architectures that enable enhanced equalization without increase in complexity over a wide range of applications and use cases.
