NetLogic Showcases 10G/40G/100G Ethernet PHY/SerDes

NetLogic Microsystems is showcasing its portfolio of high-performance 10-100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) PHY/SerDes devices, including:

  • Quad-channel 10G PHY devices with SFP+ SR and direct-attached copper

  • 40G PHY devices with QSFP+ 40G optical modules

  • Quad-channel 10G PHY/SerDes devices with EDC (10GBASE-LRM)

  • 10GbE devices for backplane applications (10GBASE-KR)

  • 40GbE/100GbE applications with MLD interfaces.

NetLogic Microsystems' portfolio of devices supports 10Gbps SFI-to-XFI, SFI-to-XAUI and RXAUI, nPPI to nAUI, 10GBASE-KR and KR4 to XFI, XAUI and RXAUI, and XLAUI and CAUI to MLD.

NetLogic's electronic dispersion compensation (EDC) engine has proven interoperability with several SFP+ modules for 10GBASE-LRM applications and utilizes a combination of analog and digital techniques to provide substantial margin with the standard IEEE pre-cursor, post-cursor and symmetric pulses, along with the dynamic stressor conditions.

In addition, NetLogic Microsystems will be demonstrating its PHY/SerDes devices for backplane applications. The demonstration will showcase an advanced capability to drive over one meter of standard FR4 backplanes at rates of 10Gbps and 40Gbps. These devices also integrate a state-of-the-art low-power EDC engine targeted at the 10GBASE-KR and KR4 standards.
