Wireless-Inspired Wireline Communication Systems

This talk will present a study in how advances in RF and wireless design techniques can be applied to low-power, energy-efficient broadband transceiver circuitry. We present some key concepts driving the migration of optical communication towards adoption of coherent communication within the data center and how the transceiver must evolve to handle these schemes. Finally, we present some design alternatives for coherent demodulation of high-speed QPSK signals.
