20G Chip to Chip Communication
The 20G Chip to Chip communication module is a small, easy to implement design allowing high-speed data transfer over 3 lanes running at 6.375Gbps. It is based on multiple Macnica 10Gbe "MACLite" Ethernet MACs and is therefore Ethernet compatible. This allows the use of external commercial switches should a more complex "crossbar" type architecture need to be implemented. The design is very resource effective using only 17k LEs and is suitable for chip to chip communications on a single PCB or over a backplane.
