Mixel Showcases the Newest Members of Its SerDes IP Family, Quad 1.25Gbps/Channel LVDS Serializer and De-Serializer at DesignCon2007

The New LVDS Serializer and De-Serializer IPs Offer a Total Bandwidth of 5.0 Gbps Suitable for Supporting High-End Multi-Media Applications

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mixel Inc. today announced availability of the MXL-LVDS-SR-4CH Serializer and the companion MXL-LVDS-DS-4CH De-Serializer IPs. These LVDS SerDes IPs are new additions to Mixels existing family of SerDes products which includes 2nd generation, high performance, Giga-bit SerDes technology supporting a wide range of applications such as XAUI, SATA, PCI-Express, Fibre Channel, SONET-OIF, and backplane. Both IPs support 4-data channels and one clock channel and achieve 5Gbps throughput performance at low power consumption. On the parallel interface, the number of bits per channel can be programmed to 7 or 10-bits. The IPs conform to TIA/EIA-644 standard and are silicon-proven in 0.18um process technology.

“The low jitter performance, the programmable features such as the multiplication ratio, and the selectable pre-emphasis make for a compelling solution”

These LVDS SerDes IPs offer the highest data rate available for Flat Panel Display applications at excellent Jitter performance said Ashraf Takla, Mixel President and CEO. The low jitter performance, the programmable features such as the multiplication ratio, and the selectable pre-emphasis make for a compelling solution, he added.

The MXL-LVDS-SR-4CH Serializer and the companion MXL-LVDS-DS-4CH De-Serializer offer many features to reduce power and improve performance. The transmitter employs selectable pre-emphasis to enable transmission over long haul with low Bit Error Rate. The number of parallel bits can be programmed to 7 or 10-bits. The receiver and transmitter were designed with special care to ensure matching between data and clock channels for maximum receiver margin. The design is modular and desensitized to process variations.

The MXL-LVDS-SR-4CH and MXL-LVDS-DS-4CH are silicon-proven in 0.18um process technology and soon will be offered in smaller feature sizes.
