Re: Hari Byte vs. Word striping


Could I ask you to describe how you see these advantages and
disadvantages?   Some features of these schemes seem to have 
been imperfectly communicated.  I would very much appreciate
understanding how you see the issues.  

The complication of the byte striped version's deskew function 
frankly looks like a very large ASIC design risk factor to me.
I know there are other issues to be tackled, but we might be
paying for a wrong choice here for a long time.
