October 2010:

* Setup CAD environment in LSM, installed Design Kit, started Spice/Spectre simulations.

* Started implementation of a Sorting Decoder: - Designed a receiver with extra-wide common mode characteristics in order to sense 4 voltage levels and produce corresponding outputs differing in time domain.

* Read papers/discussions on coding theory, hadamard transform, buses, standards, design, implementation of test chip or prototype

November 2010:

* Test chip features and planning.

* Implementation of decoders for signaling methods.

* Industry survey of signaling methods w.r.t through put and power.

December 2010:

* Test chip implementation.

* Design and layout of a 4GHz data serializer.
