Product Overview
  • 10 Gbit/s bi-directional standards compliant transceiver.
  • Four independent 1.2 - 3.2 Gbit/s SERDES.
  • IEEE 802.3ae (10GbE) compliant including XAUI, XGXS, and XGMII.
  • ANSI T11.2 (10 Gigabit & 2 Gigabit Fibre Channel) compliant.
  • Supports PCI Express, Infiniband, Serial Rapid I/O, OC-48, OBSAI RP3, and other high speed backplane applications.
  • Redundant XAUI links for working and protect backplane architectures.
  • Integrated crossbar switch enables any port to any port configurations for both parallel and serial interfaces.
  • Wide operating range from 1.2 Gbit/s - 3.2 Gbit/s enables backward compatibility
  • Integrated serializer/deserializer, clock synthesis, clock recovery and 8B/10B encode/decode logic.
  • Bypass of 8B/10B encode/decode for serialization of NRZ data streams.
  • Pin configurable for standalone operation.

Typical Applications include:

  • High-speed serial backplanes.
  • 10GbE (XAUI) and 1GbE line cards.
  • 10GFC and 2GFC line cards.
  • Infiniband transceivers.
  • OC-48 Serializer/Deserializer.
  • PCI Express
  • Serial Rapid I/O
  • OBSAI RP3
  • XAUI retimer.
