Re: Are striping and coding separate issues?


Yes. Absolutely. For example, for the Hari proposal, the proposed transmission
code could have been scrambled, 4B/5B or MB810 instead of 8B/10B.

Give any Hari transmission code choice the methodology for assigning XGMII data
to Hari lanes as well as Serial PMD transmission code and data assignment are
all independent issues.
