June 26, 2012 -- Global Unichip Corp. (GUC) today announced the availability of its second-generation silicon-proven 10GBase-KR Multi-Standard SerDes IP (MSKR SerDes). GUC's MSKR SerDes meets the needs of today's most demanding high-end networking and computing applications, operating at speeds ranging from 1.25Gbps to 12.5Gbps. It supports a number of standards including 10GBase-KR, XFI, CEI-11G/6G, XAUI, RXAUI and 1 GbE.
Designed in TSMC's 40-nm CMOS technology, GUC's MSKR SerDes IP has achieved industry leading jitter generation (< 400fs) and jitter tolerance (> 0.75UI) performance. The MSKR SerDes IP features advanced and fully automatic equalization schemes in its transmitter and receiver to enable robust data transmission over legacy backplane channels.
The MSKR SerDes IP is verified to have a > 3dB margin over the channel loss specified in IEEE's 10GBase-KR standard (802.3AP). The IP comes with extensive testability features including a receiver eye monitor and pseudo random bits generator/ checker to enable production tests and in-system diagnostics.
Samples and evaluation software are now available.
