Driver pre-emphasis for data transmission
Casall, John Lindley
The main focus of this thesis is to investigate improvements to data transmission. Data transmission speeds and distances are limited by the amount of jitter in the system, and signal modifications to reduce jitter are simulated. A solution is sought to reduce the amount of system jitter, enabling the increase in the transmitting speed and distance over the cable. Optimizing the pre-emphasis signal is determined by simulation different parameters. In addition, alternative signaling schemes are investigated to compare the effectiveness and find the signal that minimizes jitter.
