Looking for study report on 128b/130b coding
Jul 29th, 2010, 5:45pm
 
Hi,

PCI-E is adopting 128/130 coding to replace 8b/10b encoding.

I'm looking for materials studying the code performance, such as transition density, DC balancing, maximum run length...

Thanks for the sharing of the information.

I think the similar theories of 8B10B may be applied to 128B/130B to achieve dc balance. The 2 preamble bits is used as sync payload.
But the max run length / data density depends on data scrambler.

That means the CDR will be more challenging! It has more DC wander, thus it needs larger CDR bandwidth (around 5-10MHz).
On the other hand to reduce jitter (clk), Tx/Rx PLL bandwidth must be reduced.
