This paper presents a 16-Gb/s 45-nm SOI CMOS transceiver for multi-standard backplane applications. The receiver uses a 12-tap DFE with circuit refinements for supporting higher data rates. Both the receiver and the transmitter use dynamic adaptation to combat parameter drift due to changing supply and temperature. A 3-tap FFE is included in the(More)
