Re: Maximum run length of 64/66b


Perhaps I missed it, but I haven't seen any responses to the
question below, so let me hazard a guess and hope that someone
corrects me if I'm wrong:

 1) The max run length is 66, since the sync bits are not

 2) I suspect the frequency content is sufficiently low that
    any AC coupling would be impossible.

Improved theoretical or empirical results might help 64b/66b
serve other applications as well as this one, I would think.  
Opinions anyone?
