Tektronix Wins DesignCon 2023 Best Paper Award for Work in Data-Driven PAM4 SerDes Modelling

Tektronix Wins DesignCon 2023 Best Paper Award for Work in Data-Driven PAM4 SerDes Modelling


Tektronix, Inc., the industry-leading test and measurement company, has announced it is a recipient of the 2023 DesignCon Best Paper Award. The awards program honors Tektronix for its outstanding contribution to the diverse educational goals of DesignCon, the nation's premiere event for chip, board, and systems design engineers. The paper was written by Tektronix team members Wenzheng (Shawn) Sun and Muhammad Saad Chughtai in collaboration with Yongjin Choi and Chris Cheng of Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). Priyank Kashyap and Pual Franzon of North Carolina State University also co-wrote the paper. The Best Paper Awards serve to acknowledge the authors who receive them as leading practitioners in semiconductor and electronic design, and this submission was paired with a corresponding proof of concept demonstration at the Tektronix DesignCon booth.

The corresponding demonstration generated a lot of interest from audience members in both academia and industry. The demonstration setup consisted of a 50Gbit/s PAM4 source, a variable ISI channel and a SX scope, which was then used to showcase a live percentage loss injection, acquisition, software EQ and Eye diagram accumulation using PAMJET. The PAMJET processing took less than one minute, and the machine learning model showed instant eye diagram generation a feat that is many times faster, less intensive, and more repeatable than current techniques. This breakthrough uses innovative technology coupled with bespoke machine learning algorithms and has many potential applications including Data Center improvements, Transceiver anomaly detection, and further breakthroughs within Artificial Intelligence.
