TI serial link aggregators directly connect serial links from data converters and processors without having to re-format the data for transmission in applications like wireless infrastructure, switches, routers, video surveillance, machine vision, high-speed imaging and optical transport systems. The TLK10081 can aggregate up to eight lanes of full-duplex, 1.25-Gbps data traffic onto a single 10-Gbps link for transmission over short-distance backplanes or copper cables up to 10 meters, or long-distance optical links.
Key features and benefits of the TLK10081 and TLK10022:
-Reduced system design complexity: Class of interface IC offers multiple serial link aggregation configurations that deliver 10- Gbps maximum throughput to reduce system design complexity, implementation costs, board space and power consumption. The TLK10022 supports 4:1, 3:1 and 2:1 bidirectional serial link configurations, while the TLK10081 manages 8:1 bidirectional links.
-Data agnostic aggregation: Each device supports many different data types without requiring special data encoding.
-Intelligent serial link switching: Enables programmable channel lane switching of serial links in different configurations without using external multiplexing. This feature reduces system implementation time while achieving fault tolerance goals.
-Built-in digital equalization: Advanced decision feedback equalization and feed forward equalization extends transmission distances over copper media and optical links.
The TLK10081 and TLK10022 can be combined with other TI devices to create a signal chain solution: ADS42JB69 dual 16-bit, 250-MSPS analog-to-digital converter with JESD204B serial interface, SN65LVCP1414 14.2-Gbps 4-channel equalizer and SN65LVCP114 14.2- Gbps quad mux redriver.
