The EBL4600CI-EVALZ (QLx4600-S30) lane extender evaluation boards are versatile stand-alone cards developed to evaluate the performance of the QLX4600 series of quad equalizers. The 4-layer boards measure 4”(w) x 5.6”(h) x 0.059”(t) in dimension, and are fabricated with AlliedSignal FR408 dielectric material. 100Ω differential signal traces are 0.0062" wide with 0.0058" spacing, while 50Ω single-ended traces are 0.009" wide.
