This paper looks at the benefits of converting parallel buses to high speed serial links and uses the Cypress HOTLink chipset in an ATM switch application as an example. Layout techniques and design considerations are covered including error detection and correction, performance of various cable media, maximum cable length, handling jitter and clock and data recovery (CDR) circuits.
