1. A communication device, comprising:

  • a master signal generator adapted to generate a master timing signal;

    a receive-lane adapted to receive an analog serial data signal and including;

    a sampling signal generator adapted to generate multiple time-staggered sampling signals based on the master timing signal, andmultiple data paths each adapted to sample the serial data signal in accordance with a corresponding one of the time-staggered sampling signals, thereby producing multiple time-staggered data sample streams; and

    a data demultiplexer module adapted to time-deskew and demultiplex the multiple time-staggered data streams.
