8Gbps, 1/2 Lane PCIe 3.0/SATA3 Combo ReDrivers from Diodes Incorporated Support PC Industry’s Modern Standby Mode

Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD) has introduced the PI3EQX12902E/PI3EQX12904E to further strengthen its ReDriver™ product offering. These ReDrivers meet the Modern Standby mode requirements as outlined by Microsoft Corporation, and deliver elevated linearity and ultra-low jitter characteristics now expected in laptop, notebook, industrial PC, and embedded system designs.

Operating from a 3.3V rail and in standby mode, the 1-lane PI3EQX12902E consumes 1.7mW with the 2-lane PI3EQX12904E consuming 3.3mW, significantly extending battery life. Their built-in coupling capacitors help reduce component count and save board space.

These PCIe® 3.0/SATA3 combo ReDrivers support data rates up to 8Gbps, delivering heightened signal driving capacity and are transparent to link training. They provide programmable equalization, linear swing, and flat gain capabilities, allowing signal losses to be compensated for extending PCB trace lengths. Their conformance with both PCIe and SATA protocols present OEMs with extremely versatile solutions that can easily be applied to numerous different products.

Supplied in a 30-TQFN (ZL) package format, the PI3EQX12902E is priced at $0.70 each in 3500 piece quantities. The PI3EQX12904E comes in a 42-TQFN (ZH) package and is priced at $1.30 each in 3500 piece quantities.
