An amplitude-optimised bit-edge equalisation (BEE) scheme is presented and compared with pulse-width modulation for mitigating intersymbol interference in high-speed backplane applications. With transmitter pre-coding and pre-emphasis, this BEE uses an adaptive LMS algorithm as a receiver error convergence engine by adjusting error derivation points. The optimality of the proposed BEE scheme is discussed.
