Product Description

The PI2DBS212 is an 1:2 differential channel multiplexer/demultiplexer switch. Using a specialized design scheme, Diodes has been able to achieve a performance of 3Gbps data rate mux/de-mux function. Due to its bi-directional nature, the PI2DBS212 can be used to allocate bandwidth to two different locations as a demux, or connect two high-speed sources to a single receiver as a mux.

The PI2DBS212 will target the following standards: SAS, SATA I, SATA II, XAUI, INFINIBAND, HYPERTRANSPORT, and RAP ID I/O, for application in computers, consumer electronics, instrumentation, etc.
