Abstract
High speed serial communication continues to be in high demand to keep up with the ever-increasing digital communication circuits, which in all practically, leads to higher demand of security. The goal of this research is to explore high speed serial data transmission and scrambling capability utilizing state-of-the-art 130nm and 90nm SiGe BiCMOS Technology. A novel clock distribution technique using clock doublers in close proximity to sub-circuits to achieve high speed, low noise, and low power is explored. Three components are designed and developed: Scrambler, Serializer (Transmitter), and Deserializer (Receiver).
