Re: [10GMMF] TP3 call: Meeting reminder June 7

Jim et al -
I may not be able to attend all of (or any of) the call, but here is my quick opinion on the proposed jitter tolerance levels.
The intention of the test is to ensure the CDR has the appropriate frequency response to track frequencies that might be "hidden" by the Tx 4 MHz tracking filter. As it is a CDR frequency response test, other stresses are not required.
  • I agree with 40 kHz and 5 UI. It's the original test point, and is clearly unrelated to any other stresses than tracking.
  • 400 kHz and 0.5 UI is of marginal value for the time required. In the absence of other stresses, I expect most CDRs can tolerate this whether they track it or not.
  • 4 MHz and 0.05 UI with no other stresses is of no value for the time required and should be eliminated. I cannot imagine a part that would pass all other Rx tests and fail this.
  • If the group wants a 2nd point, I would prefer, as an option to the 400 kHz entry, to test 1 UI at 200 kHz. At least at that magnitude, some tracking will be required.
Thanks, Tom

Hello all,

This is a meeting announcement for the TP3 teleconference.
The next TP3 call will occur on Tuesday, June 7, 2005

9:00 am PDT, 12 Noon EDT, 17:00 UK, 18:00 Germany

United States toll-free dial in: 888-387-8686
International dial in: + 1 303-928-3281
"Conference Room" Number: 4703482

Based on reflector traffic, it looks like we are ready to discuss and decide the value of signal-to-noise for the TP3 comprehensive test (Qsq).  I believe Sudeep may have a presentation for us.

Last week we kicked off discussion of receiver jitter tolerance testing comments; that discussion has moved to the reflector with the goal of reaching a consensus response to the open comments.  We may be ready to write a suggested response.

>>> Please keep in mind that to get comments closed, we should have a suggested response which is in the form that it instructs the editor (for example: replace " ... old, bad text." with " ... new, good text."  add new figure contained in file <e-mailed to editor>). Technical justification for some responses may be required to convince the task force, and a couple of slides which directly address a comment can be very beneficial. <<<<

Thank you very much, and I hope to hear you on Tuesday.

As a courtesy to others, you may wish to mute your telephone line while listening. 
Here are the commands:

*6 Mutes line

*7 Un-mutes line
