TLK10232: Looking for XFI repeater solution

Part Number: TLK10232
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: DS100BR210, DS100BR410, DS125DF1610, DS110DF410, DS110DF111

Dear team,

I am looking for repeater solution for XFI interface and find TLK10232 from website.

Is this the suitable part? please share your comments/solutions with us. Thanks.



  • Hi,

    Not sure what you mean by repeater, as the functionality it comprises varies with convention. See TI's description below.

    • For TI convention, a repeater is synonymous with a redriver. A redriver is a simple linear equalizer + driver without retiming function
      • From TI's redriver portfolio the DS100BR410 or DS100BR210 may be considered for XFI applications
    •  TI also has retimer part numbers. The retimer implements clock and data recovery to output retimed version of signal with low jitter
      • DS110DF410, DS110DF111 or DS125DF1610 10G retimers may be considered for XFI applications
    • The TLK10232 is a XAUI to serial 10G PHY SerDes. It does support XFI interface on the 10G s serial side
