The MXL-SRDS-EPON is an Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) transceiver implemented in digital CMOS technology. The SerDes IP offers data transfer rate of 1.25Gbps, for both upstream & downstream direction, meeting IEEE 802.3ah EPON standard specification.
The receiver side implements programmable post-equalization, with on chip terminations, clock/data recovery PLL and De-Serializer. The Serializer section uses the recovered clock to serialize the parallel data to be transmitted. The transmitter then drives the serial data on the serial differential outputs, while incorporating the pre-emphasis signal.
The MXL-SRDS-EPON is capable of generating low-jitter outputs in the noisy environment typical of million-gate SOC.
