Hi,

Has anyone done any backplane analyses using GTL technology?
I'm looking for any information, white papers, app notes, etc. addressing
multidrop backplanes using GTL bidirectional drivers & receivers. Any
information regarding the following would be greatly appreciated:

- attainable backplane speed vs. loading (# of slots)
- GTL problems / anomalies
- signal integrity / noise susceptibility
- ASIC vendors with GTL I/O (support for live insertion would be nice)
- preferred design parameters
- etc.

Thanks in advance,
Jim Mc
