A DSP-based low-power 12.5Gb/s SerDes using a baud-rate ADC and a digital data-path is developed for backplane data communication. A digital 2-tap FFE and a 5-tap DFE in the RX provide channel compensation. A BER of &lt;10<sup>-15</sup> is measured over legacy backplanes with 24dB loss at Nyquist. The power consumption and die area are 330mW and(More)
A key challenge in designing of high-bandwidth systems such as data-routers and super-computers is to transfer large amounts of data between ICs – either on the same circuit board or between boards. Analysis of typical backplane channel attenuation (-24dB) and package losses (-1 to -2dB) in the presence of crosstalk predict that an un-equalized transceiver(More)
