High performance serial communication systems often require the Bit Error Rate (BER) to be at the level of 10-12 or below. The excessive test time for measuring such a low BER is a major hindrance in testing communication systems cost-effectively. In this paper, we propose a new technique for accurate and efficient estimation of the BER. The proposed(More)
In this paper, we propose a method for extracting the spectral information of a multi-gigahertz jittery signal. This method may utilize existing on-chip single-shot period measurement techniques to measure the multi-gigahertz signal periods for spectral analysis. This method does not require an external sampling clock, nor any additional measurement beyond(More)
In this paper, we propose a simple technique for estimating the standard deviation of a Gaussian random jitter component in a multi-gigahertz signal. This method may utilize existing on-chip single-shot period measurement techniques to measure the multi-gigahertz signal periods for the estimation. This method does not require an external sampling clock, nor(More)
This paper describes a novel test method for continuous-time adaptive equalizers. This technique applies a two-sinusoidal-tone signal as stimulus and includes an RMS detector for testing, which incurs no performance degradation and a very small area overhead. To validate the technique, we used a recently published adaptive equalizer as our test case and(More)
In this paper, we propose a method for extracting the spectral information of a multi-gigahertz jittery signal. This method utilizes existing on-chip single-shot period measurement techniques to sample and measure the period of multiple cycles of the multi-gigahertz periodic signal for spectral analysis. Since measurements are made on the period of multiple(More)
