The 112G SerDes is designed in Globalfoundries’ ASIC FX-14 technology, and is capable of supporting several multi-level signaling schemes while targeting 25dB+ insertion loss interconnects. The 112G SerDes platform supports a variety of higher level encoding schemes including forward error correction. 

What is learnt from the 112G in FX-14 will be used to develop 112G SerDes IP cores in the FX-7 manufacturing process based on a 7nm technology platform.

Customers are presently designing ASICs in the 14LPP and 7LP process technologies using the 56Gbps and other FX-14 SerDes cores. Globalfoundries has delivered a 56Gbps PAM4 SerDes on the company’s 14nm FinFET process and is shipping development boards.
