WizardLink is a family of transceivers produced by Texas Instruments and in particular, for space applications, the TI TLK2711 is typically referred. It defines a very basic protocol: usage of 8b/10b encoding, Serialization/Deserialization, Comma detection and alignment, Error codes for loss of signal or invalid 8b/10b symbol. Neither link initialization nor flow control are defined in WizardLink. Typical usage involves user-defined (non-standard) initialization and flow control features. The non-standard approach to define such important layers for the communication such as initialization and flow control may lead to longer implementation time and incompatibility between units from different vendors. WizardLink can be used as the lowest layer of SpaceFibre.
