: SERDES IP Core
, Serializer / Deserializer
SERDES s stands for Serializer/Deserializer. It is essentially an IP block that can convert parallel data into serial data. As suggested by the name, this device has two functional components that serve to convert data from parallel interfaces in each direction. These devices can be used for data transmission over a differential line when one must minimize the number of connections or Input/Output pins being used.
A Serializer/Deserializer is a pair of functional blocks commonly used in high speed communications to compensate for limited input/output. These blocks convert data between serial data and parallel interfaces in each direction. The term "SerDes" generically refers to interfaces used in various technologies and applications.
