The PI3EQX1014 is a low-power, high-performance, USB 3.2 Gen 2 linear ReDriver™ designed specifically for the USB 3.2 protocol.
The device provides programmable equalization and flat gain to optimize performance over a variety of physical mediums by reducing intersymbol interference. PI3EQX1014 supports two 100Ω differential CML data I/Os between the Protocol ASIC to a switch fabric, over cable, or to extend the signals across other distant data pathways on the user’s platform.
The integrated equalization circuitry provides flexibility with signal integrity of the signal before the ReDriver. Each channel operates fully independently. The channels’ input signal level determines whether the output is active.
The PI3EQX1014 also includes an automatic receiver detect function. The receiver detection loop is active again if the corresponding channel’s signal detector is idle for longer than 7.3ms. The channel then moves to unplug mode if load is not detected, or it returns to low-power mode (slumber mode) due to inactivity.
