Diodes’ PI3EQX16908GL is a multi-data rate, 8 differential channels ReDriver™. The device provides programmable linear equalization, output swing and flat gain, by I2C Control, to optimize performance over a variety of physical mediums by reducing Intersymbol interference.

PI3EQX16908GL supports eight 100-Ohm Differential CML data I/O’s and extends 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, whereas the integrated linear amplifier/buffer circuitry provides flexibility with signal integrity of the signal after the ReDriver.
