SNLS696A April 2021 – May 2021 TSER953
The TSER953 features enhanced V3Link diagnostics, system monitoring, and Built-In Self Test capabilities. The device monitors forward channel and back channel data for errors and reports them in the status registers. The device also supports voltage and temperature measurement for system level diagnostics. The Built-In Self Test feature allows testing of the forward channel and back channel data transmissions without external data connections.
The TSER953 is also capable of providing Alarm and Status information, which can be read from the SENSOR_STS registers (0x51-0x54) in the connected TDES954 or TDES960 deserializer. Status bits are always being transmitted, but transmission of Alarm bits needs to be enabled from registers 0x1C-0x1E in the TSER953 serializer.
