Engineers at Rambus have come up with a way to increase performance and save customers money with one of its latest innovations - SmartDFE (Decision Feedback Equalization).

A Rambus Press Release (2/6/06) states:

Incorporated into Rambus’ advanced backplane (ABP) solution, SmartDFE enables substantial performance increase in high-speed data transmission with superior bit error rate margins when compared to standard equalization methods. ABP solutions with SmartDFE can reach performance levels of up to 7.5Gbps for upgraded systems and support legacy rates ranging from 1-6.4Gbps.

“To achieve considerable cost savings on the bill of materials for passive components, our SmartDFE technology was designed to enable the use of lower cost dielectric materials and connectors,” said Kevin Donnelly, vice president of engineering for Rambus Inc.
