I was referring to:
Numerical example (with 26.5625 GBd)
• ±100 PPM at 4 MHz causes ~0.2 UI PtP
• ±100 PPM at 4 kHz causes ~200 UI PtP

seen the comment on using 100 ppm spec to calculate jitter,
however one should not equate frequency accuracy to jitter.
is possible to have a very accurate clock with poor phase
noise and have a clock with 100 ppm frequency error with
very good phase noise.

I don't think the +/-100 ppm spec. can be used to calculate
peak-to-peak LF jitter.
One could use a +/-100 ppm crystal oscillator on the host,
which could operate at either edge of the spec. range. The
LF jitter effect should be in addition to the +/-100ppm

Typically DC-DC convertor will have
one dominant tone output like 3rd or 5th harmonic, etc.
Given today efficient DC-DC convertors operates at >
it is much easier to filter the spurs
with reasonable size low-ESR capacitor, which was not
the case when DC-DC convertors operated at 50 KHz!
Obviously >1 MHz DC-DC convertor
can’t generate multiple of UIs into SerDes output and
pass limits we already have in place!
The analysis was done analysing a
it possible to get a bad spur from tones from
a switching power supply that could influence
the behavior in the analysis?
