OC-192 transmitter in standard 0.18 /spl mu/m CMOS

A fully integrated SONET OC-192 transmitter IC using a standard CMOS process consists of an input data register, FIFO, CMU, and 16:1 multiplexer to give a 10Gb/s serial output. A higher FEC rate, 10.7Gb/s, is supported. This chip, using a 0.18/spl mu/m process, exceeds SONET requirements, dissipating 450mW.
