No problem going to 2f is = 50 Mbps.
The probability of error depends solely on the Voltage becoming the wrong polarity when the discriminator has computed the polarity for that bit..
What affects the SNR? , that determines the BER.
The slew rate indicates a variable amplitude and thus a variable SNR declining signal level, this also means a declining ...
This is a very crude plan, but it should get you started.
Your typical mask will look like this:
Now we have to figure out how to define each of the three regions shown in red. For that, we need to get the SERDES datasheet and look up the numbers.
The bar on the top, as you already know, indicates the maximum allowed voltage. It means that, if the input ...
