Re: [10GBT] Discussions on precoder decisions

the 128DSQ constellation ("double square") is the natural go-in-between 8 PAM and 16 PAM, much more so than 12PAM. Contrary to 12PAM, all encoding, decoding, and precoding operations are based on powers-of-two arithmetic. 128DSQ has been known for a long time in the literature and its good fit with precoding has been well described.
On precoding, please see ungerboeck_1_0704.pdf (Portland). One fixed IIR-type precoder is enough. If the group cannot agree on a single fixed precoder, then let it be a very small set (2?) of fixed precoders, one being selected preferrably during auto negotiation.

Thanks again for taking the badly needed lead on urging along the decision making. The precoder definition is clearly in need of consideration, although I think it will take simulation work to really nail it down. Of course you can't finish it if you don't get started.
On last week's call, I was surprised by the "double square" contribution, with it's sort of 16/8 PAM flavor. It seems to open the case up rather than converging, but I wonder what's your take on it? I was going to call you, only to realize that I don't have your phone contact.
