Maximum baud rate of electrical signaling over backplanes is limited by reflection and crosstalk noise at connectors as well as ISI caused by frequency-dependent dielectric loss. A DFE is an effective circuit to alleviate ISI without amplifying noise. A multi-tap DFE is often used in order to cancel long-tail ISI [1–3]. However, multiple DFE taps may limit… CONTINUE READING
