Paper Abstract

The need for high bandwidth data transmission over distances of up to 10 kilometers and a large number of nodes has been fulfilled by the introduction of Enterprise Systems Connection Architecture (ESCONTM) and Fiber Channel standards. ESCON is an IBMTM serial interconnect standard for interconnecting IBM-compatible mainframes and their peripherals at 200 Megabud serial transmission rate. Fiber Channel is a serial interconnection standard for interconnecting supercomputers, mainframes, workstations, Personal Computers, storage devices, graphics terminals, scanners and printers at a data rate of 132 to 1065 Megabaud. This paper discusses the details of the GaAs/CMOS chipset for ESCON/Fiber Channel applications. It also describes the measurement setup for evaluating the jitter parameters, the jitter results of the transmitter and the jitter tolerance of the receiver.
