Avago Demonstrates 20 Gbps Performance in 40nm CMOS

Avago Technologies has demonstrated 20 Gbps SerDes performance in 40nm CMOS technology. The 40nm cores represent Avago's seventh generation of high performance SerDes IP. The embedded SerDes technology will support a broad range of standards, such as PCI Express, Fibre Channel, XAUI, CEI-11G, XFI, 802.3ap (KR), and SFI and is suitable for chip-to-chip, board-to-board, chasis-to-chasis, and backplane implementations.

Avago noted that it has shipped over 60 million SerDes channels to date.
