Kawasaki Microelectronics (K-Micro) has expanded its ASIC intellectual property (IP) portfolio with the additions of fast-lock clock and data recovery (CDR) for fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) applications, 10Gbps Serdes with optional adaptive receive equalization technology for backplane applications, and PCI Express technology for networking, storage, and consumer applications.

"Most serial I/O standards emerging today are based on Serdes technology, and K-Micro's newest offerings enable our customers to adhere to these latest specifications," said Sunil Baliga, vice president of marketing and business development for K-Micro. "K-Micro decided a few years ago to make Serdes a core competency for the company. We will continue to innovate in Serdes; for example, we plan to introduce 90nm Serdes later this year and will port our adaptive receive equalization technology to lower-rate Serdes."

The Serdes technology offerings now span from 0.18?m to 0.13?m and from 155Mbps to 10Gbps, enabling flexible solutions in long haul, metro and access networks.
