The Aurora Protocol is a link layer communications protocol for use on point-to-point serial links. Developed by Xilinx, it is intended for use in high-speed (gigabits/second and more) connections internally in a computer or in an embedded system. It uses either 8b/10b encoding or 64b/66b encoding. The Aurora 8B/10B protocol specification states: "The Aurora 8B/10B protocol is an open standard and is available for implementation by anyone without restriction.", there is no such clear statement in the Aurora 64B/66B protocol specification.
