Texas Instruments  DS250DF210ABMT

The DS250DF210 device is a two-channel, multi-rate retimer with integrated signalconditioning. It is used to extend the reach and robustness of long, lossy, crosstalk-impaired,high-speed serial links while achieving a bit error rate (BER) of 10-15or less.

Each channel of the DS250DF210 independently locks to serial data rates in a continuousrange from 20.6 Gbps to 25.8 Gbps or to any supported sub-rate (÷2 and ÷4), including key datarates such as 10.3125 Gbps and 12.5 Gbps, which allows the DS250DF210 to support individual laneForward Error Correction (FEC) pass-through.

The DS250DF210 has a single power supply and minimal need for external components. Thesefeatures reduce PCB-routing complexity and BOM cost.

The advanced equalization features of the DS250DF210 include a low-jitter 3-tap transmitfinite impulse response (FIR) filter, an adaptive continuous-time linear equalizer (CTLE), and anadaptive decision feedback equalizer (DFE). This enables reach extension for lossy interconnect andbackplanes with multiple connectors and crosstalk. The integrated CDR function is ideal forfront-port optical module applications to reset the jitter budget and retime the high-speed serialdata. The DS250DF210 implements a 2x2 cross-point, providing the host with lane crossing, fanout,and multiplexing options

The DS250DF210 can be configured either through the SMBus or through an external EEPROM.Up to 16 devices can share a single EEPROM using Common Channel format. A non-disruptive, on-chipeye monitor and a PRBS generator or checker allow for in-system diagnostics.
