The recently published IEEE 802.3an/bz standard describes the 10GBASE-T application for operation over category 6/class E (~50 meter), augmented category 6/class E, and class F twisted-pair copper cabling (~100 meter). The 802.3an/bz was established to enable UTP-based solutions that are historically lower cost than their comparable fiber-based solutions.
The 802.3an/bz physical layer usesthe existing 10 Gigabit Ethernet MAC and media independent interface as specified in IEEE 802.3ae™, 2002. It is intended that the IEEE 802.3an/bz will provide very high rates of communication with low latency and IP driven Ethernet frame format, supporting the maximal and minimal frame lengths.
- Based on a proprietary algorithmic solution.
- Novel architecture reaches very low gate count.
- Internal double buffer for continuous decoding with maximum efficiency.
- Programmable number of iterations, support resolution of 1/48 iteration.
- Internal convergence test stops the decoder when data is fully recovered (0 errors).
- Decoded data rate exceeds 6400 Mbit/s at 400-800 MHz clock frequency.
- Code synthesizable to ASIC 130nm/90nm technology or lower.
- BER of 1E-12 at 23.5dB with constant delay of 0.32 µsec.
- TurboBest's IEEE802.3an/bz LDPC decoder core is based on a proprietary algorithmic solution accompanied by a specifically tailored decoder architecture. These provide a very efficient, low complexity and low power decoder core supporting the required high throughput according to the IEEE802.3an/bz standard.
