Many serial data transmission standards utilize 8b/10b encoding to ensure sufficient data transitions for clock recovery. This reference design describes an encoder/decoder suitable for performing 8b/10b encoding/decoding within Lattice programmable logic devices. Several generic CPLD and FPGA implementations are shown with this reference design.
