Optimizing Transceivers to Minimize BER

Although our communication links are generally designed and optimized to maximize SNR, that doesn’t necessarily minimize the bit error rate. The situation gets worse once forward error correction (FEC) is taken into account. Join us at ISCAS 2021 in the special session on Advanced Energy-Efficient Wireline & Optical Communications where Ph.D. candidate Ming Yang will present our paper on the relevant tradeoffs in modern wireline links. He’ll show how we can do better!
