In 2012 the Higgs boson was discovered at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Measurements of the Higgs boson's mass and couplings to other particles are now a high priority for particle physicists. In particular, deviations from the expected couplings would appear as changes to the Higgs cross-section. It is therefore important to analyze the cross sections in terms of the coupling parameters. In this study, Higgs production rates in 13 TeV proton-proton collisions were calculated with a Monte Carlo-based program and event generator named VBFNLO. The dependence on the Higgs couplings to top quarks, bottom quarks, and vector bosons was parameterized with a polynomial fit. Because boosted Higgs production is expected to result in a cleaner signature for precision measurements, the fits were performed in both inclusive and boosted samples. Overall, these fits manifest the clear relations between the Higgs cross section and the couplings of the fundamental particles. Precision measurements that use this technique will require larger data sets. Larger samples can be obtained by colliding more intense beams in the LHC. The proposed HL-LHC (High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider) will feature 5-7 times more intense proton beams than the current LHC. The production of additional particles will require an upgraded pixel detector system containing smaller pixels. To read out the increased data set will require higher frequency of data transmission rates, up to 5 Gbps. The wires that will be utilized to transmit this data must fulfill several criteria in order to be utilized in the pixel detector system; these include: high radiation tolerance and low mass. Thus tests were made on a hybrid set of data transmission wires at low voltage. Bit Error Rates (BER) were measured based on the length of Pseudo-Random-Bit-Sequence (PRBS) being used and the type of signal conditioning being applied on the wires.
