Multi-Gigabit Data Transmission

  • Physical-layer technology platform for the automotive sector for data transmission of 6–13 Gbit/s via a single twisted-pair cable, based on:

- A high-quality modulation format
- Digital signal processing (DSP)
- Deep submicron standard CMOS

  • Low-power multi-gigabit SerDes receiver for efficient and improved equalization of channels with medium insertion loss (10–15 dB):

- Multi-parameter continuous-time linear equalizer (CTLE)
- Mixed-signal adaption controller
- Including Link Health Monitor

  • Copper-wire design with low attenuation losses in the high frequency range:

- Combined with reduced weight
- Use of economical standard materials
