The increasing trends in SoCs and SiPs technologies demand integration of large numbers of buses and metal tracks for interconnections. On-Chip SerDes Transceiver is a promising solution which can reduce the number of interconnects and offers remarkable benefits in context with power consumption, area congestion and crosstalk. This paper reports a design of a new Serializer and Deserializer architecture for basic functional operations of serialization and deserialization used in On-Chip SerDes

The main advantage of this technique which is input is sampled with lower clock (half the original rate) and is distributed for the same functional throughput, which results in power savings in the clock distribution network. This proposed Serializer and Deserializer architecture is designed using UMC 180 nm CMOS technology and simulation is done using Cadence Spectre simulator with a supply voltage of 1.8 V. The present design is compared with the earlier published similar works and improvements are obtained in terms of power consumption and area as shown in Tables 1-3 respectively. This design also helps the designer for solving crosstalk issues.
