In this paper, the authors give the design of link where the parallel digital data are transmitted serially at the rate of 3.125Gbps on the Spartan 6 evaluation board. The implemented design is to test Aurora 8b/10b protocol in order to transfer 16-bit parallel data serially over the fiber optic cable in full duplex mode. The 16-bit parallel data are transmitted and received by the SERialized/DE-Serialized (SERDES) using Multi-Giga bit Transceiver (MGT) at the clock rate of 156.25MHz.Aurora protocol converts the parallel data to serial and serial to parallel.
