Avago Technologies announces that its 28Gbps high-bandwidth, low-power Serialiser/Deserialiser (SerDes) core is compliant with the Common Electrical Interface (CEI) standard for 28G Very Short Reach (VSR) enabling a broader range of data networking applications.

Over 20 crore embedded SerDes channels integrated in ASICs used for data communication in networking, computing and storage applications have been shipped, according to the company.

"Data centre equipment designers are focused on increasing bandwidth to meet the demands of cloud computing and virtualisation, but power consumption is always a key as well," said Frank Ostojic, VP and general manager of the ASIC Products Division at Avago. "With 28G VSR compliance, our SerDes cores can better help our customers address these challenges for their next-generation networking equipment, which in turn will help Avago to continue setting new SerDes capability milestones."

Avago IP SerDes cores can be easily integrated due to their modular, multi-rate architecture, and Avago has integrated over 400 SerDes channels on a single ASIC. According to Avago, its SerDes cores feature a unique decision feedback equalisation (DFE) architecture, resulting in a number of key performance differentiators such as low overall power, best-in-class data latency, and best-in-class jitter and crosstalk tolerance.

The broad Avago SerDes portfolio supports a wide range of standards such as PCI Express, Fibre Channel, XAUI, CEI, 10GBASE-KR and SFI, providing the flexibility to address optical, copper and backplane applications.
