Quad Low-Power Unidirectional 10 GbE CDR/EyeOpener®
Fully integrated multirate CDR with EyeOpener®, limiting amplifier and loss-of-signal detection, operating from 8.5 Gb/s to 11.4 Gb/s.
The BCM8304 is ideal for applications in 40-GbE modules and 4x 10G applications, and for retiming 10G signals on line cards for SFI/XFI compliance. The BCM8304 provides high-jitter tolerance and low-jitter generation and is designed to comply with Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF), IEEE 802.3ae, Telcordia®, ANSI and ITU-T jitter standards. The BCM8304 can be powered with a single 1.0V supply without any special power supply sequencing requirements. The BCM8304 is available in an 8 mm x 8 mm, 81-pin BGA.
