A 1.5 to 10 Gb/s SATA/SAS/FC receiver in 65 nm CMOS is presented. It is based on an adaptive 3-tap latch-based DFE data recovery with self-aligning capability and on an early-late digital clock recovery capable of SSC tracking. Extensive digital features allow self-calibration and eye analysis. The macro measures 0.3 mm2 and consumes 140 mA from 1 V at 8.5 Gb/s.
