MXL-SRDS-SGMII is a Serial Gigabit Media Independent Interface SerDes implemented in digital CMOS technology. The SerDes IP offers data transfer rate of 1.25Gbps, for both upstream & downstream direction, meeting Cisco Serial-GMII standard. The transmitter accepts a 10-bit parallel data, serializes it, and outputs the serial data through LVDS transmitter. The receiver accepts serial LVDS data at up to 1.25Gbps, recovers the clock and data, de-serializes the data, and makes the data available at the parallel bus. MXL-SRDS-SGMII is capable of generating low jitter outputs in the noisy environment typical of million-gate SOC.
