AN1047 - Understanding Bit-Error-Rate with HOTLink®
AN1047 explains the concept of an error rate for serial interfaces like Optical & Copper.
The concept of an error rate for digital systems may seem somewhat foreign to many digital designers. The message has always been that digital circuits always switch to either a one or a zero, and that if the circuit does not do it correctly then it must be broken.
