DAC37J84: SERDES Equalizer

Part Number: DAC37J84


My customer has a few questions about the SERDES Equalizer of the DAC37J84.

1. What is the minimum time for the equalizer to adapt?

3&5. What does UI mean? How much is 48UI converted to seconds?

Please let us know if there are any user considerations for enabling or setting the SERDES equalizer.

Thank you.


  • Hi JH,

    UI stands for unit interval. It is the bit period in the SerDes speed. If the Serdes is at 10Gbps, then the UI is 1/10Gbps = 100ps

    This Serdes core is fully adaptive and is enabled by default.
