The AlphaCORE Long-Reach (LR) Multi-Standard-Serdes (MSS) IP is a high-performance, low-power, DSP-based PHY. It is a highly configurable IP that supports all leading edge NRZ and PAM data center standards from 1Gbps to 112Gbps, supporting diverse protocols such as PCI-Express Gen1-5 and 1G/10G/25G/50G/100Gbps Ethernet.
The brilliance of the AlphaCORE LR MSS is in its register configurable DSP architecture. The AlphaCORE leverages high-performance A/D converters to digitize incoming data over copper or fiber. The AlphaCORE Master Controller uses complex signal processing techniques to recover the signal, while optimizing both power and latency.
