RE: PAM-5 at 5 Gbaud
The presentation I am referring is page 8 (sorry not pager 7), of "10
Gb/sPMD Using PAM-5 Modulation" by Oscar in January.

Perhaps i can help with this, Rich and i were at the same place when
the early MAS tutorials were presented:

which presentation do you have? i looked at the links posted earlier
("mastut.pdf"), but "page 7" in those that i saw was text, not wave forms.
is there some other one that i missed?
