Charles Grasso has done me a big favor and placed the W element simulation
of Fibre Channel presentation at the following location for download. Both
original power point format as well as the pdf format are available. Thanks
Dmitri Kuznetsov for supplying the pdf conversion to me.

IMAPS presentation by Jim Foppiano has comprehensive comparison of
measured time-domain waveforms and W-element simulations for a Gigabit
transceiver design, including long cables and traces.
A pointer to the presentation was posted on the SI list few months ago,
I included a copy below. It is still available for download.

If anyone needs to download the imaps presentation please access
my freedrive account at http://www.freedrive.com <http://www.freedrive.com>
And you can download the ppt file from the imaps folder.
Most email systems will not permit files above 5 Meg, and this
file is 10 Meg.
