The JESD204 controller IP is a highly optimized and silicon agnostic implementation of the JEDEC JESD204C.1 and JESD204B.01 standard serial interface targeting both ASICs and FPGAs.
The standard for JESD204D is expected to be published late Q3 2023. Comcores is offering an early adapters version of the upcoming JESD204D Controller IP, which will be optimized for the new standard. The JESD204 IP core supports line speeds up to 116Gbps with PAM4 and 58Gbps with NRZ, and includes full backwards compatibility with 32.5 Gbps JESD204C.1 64b66b link layer and 16 Gbps JESD204B 8b10b link layer.
The IP core enables quick and reliable deployment of the transmitter (TX), the receiver (RX) link layer and comes optionally with a tightly integrated transport layer option, that can dynamically be configured to handle any Multiple-Converter Device Alignment, Multiple Lanes (MCDA-ML) requirements. The IP comes with the widest parameter set available and has gone through extensive testing.

Predictions and expectations of the upcoming JESD204D standard
Morten Kofoed Esbjørn - May 2, 2023.JESD204 Standard which was first introduced in 2006 is one of the key standardized serial interface between data converters (ADCs and DACs) and logic devices (FPGAs or ASICs) and has come a long way since its introduction, evolving with multiple iterations from JESD204B to JESD204C. The latest iteration of this standard the JESD204D is expected to release in Q4 2023 and if you are curious about the latest developments expected in the JESD204 standard, then...
JESD204D Webinar: Expert insights into what we Expect and how to Prepare for the upcoming Standard
Join our upcoming webinar on JESD204 and get insights into what we predict the upcoming JESD204D standard will contain, based our experience working with JESD204. Our expert speaker, Piotr Koziuk, has over a decade of experience with JESD204 standards and is a member of the JEDEC Standardization Committee. He will share his prediction of what could be the features of the JESD204D and explain potentially how the new architecture will improve the Bit Error Rate (BER) through Reed Solomon Forward...
What is interlaken?
Morten Kofoed Esbjørn - Oct 31, 2022. Interlaken provides a standardized serial interface that is agnostic of underlying SerDes implementations. It ensures reliable transfer of data over a configurable number of physical connections and can be configured to support multiple lane configurations. The Interlaken protocol provides mechanisms to ensure the integrity of data transfer as well as manage data flows to ensure that the chip is not overloaded. These mechanisms effectively increase the...
