    ANSI/VITA 17.3-2018 - Serial Front Panel Data Port (sFPDP) Gen 3.0
    Abstract: This document describes an open standard for the third generation “Serial FPDP”, a high-speed low-latency serial communications protocol for use in high-speed data transfer applications. As the name implies, it is directly related to Standard Front Panel Data Port (FPDP), deriving its serial protocol from the defined protocol and control signals of FPDP. Although some recommended industry standard configurations are encouraged in Chapter 10, VITA 17.3 standard moves away from the concept of defined link rates and instead allows any link rate to be used. The VITA 17.3 standard also supports multi-lane channel bonding and advanced 64B/67B encoding to greatly increase the bandwidth capabilities of the link.
