Re: [802.3ae] XSBI vs XAUI

Within the scope of the draft standard, no.  You could do an implementation
that way, but there is nothing within the draft that explains how to do it.
Besides, using XSBI doesn't decrease the pin count, which is one of the big
pluses for XAUI.

Subject: [802.3ae] XSBI vs XAUI

	Hello all, 

	This is a simple question. I am wondering if it is possible
(practical) to use XSBI as the extension for XGMII instead of using XAUI?
