A novel pre-emphasis for a multi-level PAM transmitter is presented. Overshooting and power consumption are reduced through a level selection approach. The test chip fabricated using a TSMC 0.18 μm CMOS process shows 142 mW power dissipation with 500 Mbit/s symbol rate and 1 Gbit/s equivalent data rate.
