Currently these are the only areas that use 8B/10B encoding: PCI Express * IEEE 1394b * Serial ATA * SAS * Fibre Channel * SSA * Gigabit Ethernet (except for the twisted pair based 1000Base-T) * InfiniBand * XAUI * Serial RapidIO * DVI and HDMI (Transition Minimized Differential Signaling) * DVB Asynchronous Serial Interface (ASI) * DisplayPort Main Link * HyperTransport * Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) * USB 3.0
