Accelerated growth in AI/ML is a key driver in Hyperscalers adopting higher speed optics. There has been a shift in optical connectivity from 100G to 400G within the datacenter and up to 800G in the longer reaches with planning for 1.6T already underway. Changes in baud rate also bring about stringent requirements on noise and timing devices used in high-speed optics devices.

In this webinar we will learn about how timing requirements evolve with each generation of networking devices, what are the key requirements to watch for when designing a clocking circuit, and address power requirements for next generation optics.
