Hello IBIS Comrades,

My co-workers and I were having a discussion today about how simulators
should handle TX equalization during RX training.  I took an action item to
run this past the Open Forum and make sure I was speaking correctly.

"RX optimization (adaptive equalization), if it exists, occurs during Step
3, i.e. the call to RX AMI_Init.  During optimization the RX algorithmic
model must consider TX equalization, if it exists, and there is more than
one way to accomplish this.  Two are documented in the IBIS 5.1."

By the way, Section was clearly written.  Most of our questions
were answered simply by reading two pages of the spec.
