Hsinchu, Taiwan, June 26, 2012 - Global Unichip Corp. (GUC), the Flexible ASIC Leader, 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 1.25Gb/s to 12.5Gb/s. It supports a number of standards including 10GBase-KR, XFI, CEI-11G/6G, XAUI, RXAUI and 1 GbE.
Designed in TSMC’s 40nm 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.
“The MKSR SerDes IP is an important addition for designers working on high end computing and networking applications,” said Dr. Jen-Tai Hsu, Senior Director of R&D, GUC. “Its jitter performance is one of the best in the marketplace and demonstrates GUC’s dedication to technical excellence. It is particularly important to designers upgrading their product lineup for greater data bandwidth, and looking for high data rate solutions at 10Gb/s and beyond.”
Samples and evaluation software are now available.
The MSKR SerDes IP is the latest addition to GUC’s comprehensive portfolio of high performance SerDes IP that also include PCI Express 2.0, PCI Express 3.0, USB 3.0 and SATA3/SAS2. GUC provides other high quality mixed-signal IP, including a Double Data Rate (DDR) SRAM interface, clocking circuits, and high performance data converters.
