TI unveils industry's first all-in-one transceiver for 10-Gbps Ethernet standards

Flexible PHY SerDes supports multiple protocols for server, storage and enterprise networking equipment

DALLAS, Oct. 17, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today introduced the industry's first quad-channel XAUI/10GBASE-KR transceiver that supports multiple 10G/40G Ethernet standards, as well as proprietary data rates from 1 Gbps to 10 Gbps. The flexible TLK10034 physical layer (PHY) serializer/deserializer (SerDes) allows engineers to use one SerDes for all of their protocol needs, instead of stocking multiple devices. The TLK10034 interfaces to backplanes, copper cables, and SFP+ optical modules in server, storage and enterprise networking equipment. For information or to order samples, visit www.ti.com/tlk10034-pr.

Key features and benefits of the TLK10034

  • Multiple protocol flexibility: Each of the four bi-directional channels supports 10GBASE-KR, XAUI, 1GBASE-KX, CPRI, and OBSAI standard protocols, providing engineers with maximum flexibility in their system designs.
  • Optimized link performance: Link training seamlessly brings up the link, and optimizes the transmitter pre-emphasis levels to minimize system bit error rate (BER).
  • Reduced power consumption: Consumes 825 mW (typical) per channel, compared to competitive SerDes that consume more than 1 W.
  • Higher signal integrity: Forward error correction (FEC) manages the signal integrity performance by compensating up to 29-dB insertion loss at 6 GHz to improve BER and system margin.

System designers can create a robust data link by combining the TLK10034 with the LMK04906 clock jitter cleaner/multiplier.

Tools and support

The TLK10034EVM evaluation module (EVM) can be purchased today for US$2999, and the TLK10034SMAEVM SMA breakout daughterboard can be purchased for US$1499 to evaluate low-speed signals. A GUI software tool for the TLK10034EVM can be downloaded to manage device provisioning and testing, and HSPICE and IBIS-AMI models are available to verify the TLK10034's signal integrity.

Availability, packaging and pricing

The TLK10034 is available today in a 19-mm by 19-mm, 324-pin PBGA package for a suggested retail price of US$45 in 1,000-unit quantities.
