Re: Interface reality check


I like your idea.

The bit-error-rate monitoring of XGENIE need not be one as rigorous as SONET BIP.
You might like to exploit the inherent error-monitoring capabilities of LAN PCS
coders, like 64B/66B or (8,10) block codes.

Such error monitoring itself is a fairly useful (though not as accurate as SONET
BIP) BER indicator accurate enough for data communication, I think. By exploiting
such code-inherent capability, you need not add extra hardware logics to
accomplish the task in your XGENIE.

(BTW, my first name is Dae Young, two syllables. Sorry.)
