Abstract

Methods and apparatus for serial channel operation are disclosed. An N+l -level signaling scheme is used to transmit N staggered but overlapping NRZ sub-sequences concurrently on a serial channel. Each sequence has a bit rate R and an essential bandwidth of R HZ. The combined bit rate of the channel is NxR, but due to a lack of correlation between the subsequences, the essential bandwidth remains approximately R Hz. The signaling scheme also contains redundancy that allows some errors to be detected and/or corrected. Other embodiments are also described and claimed.
