In this work, we propose a new class of pulses for PAM type digital signals. The pulses are designed based on minimization of a figure of merit that is the product of the Cramer-Rao bound of the timing jitter variance and the mean eye closure rate. The new pulses are seen to yield significantly better performances as compared to the classical ones.
