Re: [10GBT] Request for Cat6 Emissions Characteristics
It appears you have a bug in your program. You are assuming that PAM12
is transmitting 0.8dB more power than PAM8 which is unfair. When you
correct for this PAM12 should have better EMI.
When I compute the total power transmitted for the PAM8 case by
integrating the PSD I get 4.1dBm
10*log10(sum(10.^((f8mag-116)/10)))+60 = 4.1dBm
But when I compute the total power tx for the PAM12 case I get 4.9dBm
10*log10(sum(10.^((f12mag-116)/10)))+60 = 4.9dBm
PS. You probably made a mistake in the Butterworth filtering sampling
rate adjustment or in a amplitude/power log mix-up.

It turns out that when you take into account the analog filtering and do
an accurate calculation of the PSD/"EMI PSD", neither PAM8 nor PAM12 has
an advantage in terms of EMI. I'm attaching the PDF ouput and the matlab
code to generate the PSDs using both Ungerboeck's analog filter
construction (3rd order BW LPF at fs/4) and using the (0.75+0.25D)
approach used in our July presentation (with 5th order BW LPF at fs/2).
In both cases, the peaks for the so-called "EMI PSD"s are within 0.01dB
of each other for PAM8 and PAM12.
