Hi Tommy: FPD-Link is the technology used in Camera Link. This technology sends 4 7:1 serialized data streams + a parallel clock using LVDS levels. Cable skew and data patterns influence distance achieved. Camera Link HS is packet based. The M protocol runs 8b/10b encoding at 3.125 Gbps/lane and achieves a cable bandwidth of 2.1 GByte/s. The X protocol runs at 10.3125 Gbps with scrambling and Forward Error Correction and achieves a data throughput of 1.2 Gbyte/sec per SFP+ connector.
