TI Introduces the Radiation Hardened SerDes

Texas Instruments introduced a 1.6 to 2.7 Gbps Serializer/Deserializer (serDes) device designed to support serial interfaces in high-speed data bus applications for aerospace equipment, such as satellites. The device provides very high-speed (2.5 Gbps) I/O data channels for baseband data transmission over controlled impedance media of approximately 50 ohms. The transmission media can be printed-circuit board, copper cables, or fiber-optic cable. With a 2.5V power supply and drawing less than 500mW, the device offers a lower power solution to other parallel data transmission architectures.
