Catching a lightning bolt

Flipping through my daytimer, I see DesignCon is just a couple weeks away. So, it’s time for me to get up to speed--as it were--about all the issues pushing backplanes and transceivers to the bleeding edge and beyond. If you live and breathe this fiery stuff, drop me a note at to let me know what’s keeping you up at night.

There’s no doubt the need for speed continues to send a plume of smoke up form engineers gathered at this event. Lee Goldberg will host an interesting panel on the move to 20-25 Gbit/second backplane links. My colleague Loring Wirbel will gather thought leaders from the applications world to talk about the drive to 100 Gbit/s networks.

Bring a fire extinguisher.
