The company has integrated 36 multirate serdes channels into a single CMOS chipclaimed to be nine times more than that of the current standard in serdes integration.

Operating at 3.125Gbps per channel, the IC incorporates 32 million transistors and can drive a signal up to a distance of about 20m over standard copper cable. The multirate ASIC is backward-compatible, with each channel able to operate at link rates down to 1.5Gbps.

Agilent has previously announced a chip with >50 2.5Gbps serdes transmit and receive channels and another ASIC with 16 3.25Gbps channels.
