The CYP15G0401DXB Quad HOTLink II™ transceiver is a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint communications building block allowing the transfer of data over high-speed serial links (optical fiber, balanced and unbalanced copper transmission lines) at signaling speeds ranging from 195 to 1500 MBaud per serial link. The multiple channels in each device may be combined to allow transport of wide buses across significant distances with minimal concern for offsets in clock phase or link delay.

The evaluation board allows users to become familiar with the functionality of the CYP15G0401DXB.  Some of the features include:

  • Selectable serial interfaces
    • SMA connectors
    • Small form factor pluggable (SFP) optical module cages
  • Single 3.3V power supply
  • Power-on indicator (LED)
  • JTAG interface
  • Selectable clock options
    • Onboard crystal (125 MHz)
    • SMA connectors for external REFCLK
  • LFI indicators (LED)
  • Switches for latch control
  • Selectable static control inputs
  • Selectable channel bonding options

These features allow many evaluation modes including:

  • BIST internal loopback
  • BIST external loopback
  • Parallel in - parallel out mode (encoded)
  • Parallel in - parallel out mode (unencoded)
  • Parallel in - serial out mode (testing the transmit side)
  • Different clock source (i.e., internal vs. external, different frequency mode, etc.)
