[SI-LIST] Re: what's de-emphasis

If you google with a little more gusto you will get what you
want.
In short, pre-emphasis modifies a waveform such that the
interconnect distortion is effectively canceled out.  In short, and in an
ideal
world, the signal at the receiver looks remarkably like what
was presented at the front of the pre-emphasis circuit.

Then there's
http://www.the-signal-and-power-integrity-institute.com/Pre-emphasis2.pdf


Here is what wikipedia says when you google with gusto.

In high speed digital transmission, pre-emphasis is used to improve signal
quality <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Signal_integrity> at the output of a data
transmission <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_transmission>. In
transmitting signals at high data rates, the transmission medium may
introduce distortions, so pre-emphasis is used to distort the transmitted
signal to correct for this distortion. When done properly this produces a
received signal which more closely resembles the original or desired signal,
allowing the use of higher frequencies or producing fewer bit errors.
