Many of today’s digital interface standards use 8B/10B coding and a concept of inserting or removing filler symbols (Aligns or Skip symbols) to compensate for different clock speeds within the system.

This webcast covers the basics of 8B/10B coding and data re-timing as these concepts are deployed in most common standards. It explains how such receivers are tested with Agilent’s latest J-BERT N4903B. Examples from SATA and USB 3.0 will be used to  illustrate the benefits of the new approach.
