The QT2022 integrated 10G serial-to-XAUI PHY device from Quake Technologies Inc. is manufactured in CMOS technology, and optimizes next-generation modules and system cards.

Consuming <900mW of power, the third-generation product is a bidirectional 10Gbps serial-to-XAUI physical layer device (PHY) that performs the full physical layer processing for 10Gbps Ethernet and Fiber Channel, and integrates the PMA, PCS and XGXS layers unto a single chip. It converts four 3.125Gbps XAUI lanes into a serial 10.3Gbps to 10.57Gbps data stream.

For communication, the QT2022 includes a standard MDIO/MDC and a 2-wire interface together with a Non-Volatile Register (NVR) set. It is fully compliant with IEEE802.3ae-2003 10GE and INCITS/T11 10GFC standards, XENPAK/XPAK/X2 and XFP Multi Source Agreements (MSA).

With <0.7ps of rms jitter generation, the product allows ample margin for other components in the system. It is compliant with the XFI requirements and can be connected to an electro-optical interface or an XFP module.

The 10Gbps serial receiver includes an integrated post amplifier with a sensitivity of 10mVpp per side. The built-in receive equalizer recovers data over as much as 12-inch of standard FR4 PCB, and provides a cost effective solution for the migration of 10Gbps serial lines into system cards. The product includes a suite of built-in test features, including jitter pattern and PRBS generators and checkers.

Priced at $200 in sample quantities, the QT2022 requires a single 1.2V supply, and is packaged in a 12-by-12mm? PBGA with 1mm ball pitch. An evaluation kit and an XFP-based reference board are also available upon request.
