Abstract: A multidrop backplane based on point-to-multipoint serial links enables interconnection between line cards without requiring a central switch fabric. However, maximum data rate in today's available multidrop serial links is limited to 400Mbps due to signal integrity concerns. In this paper, a novel gigabit multidrop serial link configuration for high-speed digital systems based on broadband power splitters with matching trace impedance, is proposed. Experimental results obtained from implemented prototypes demonstrate a satisfactory operation of the proposed multidrop serial backplane for a data rate of 3.5Gbps.
