Diodes Incorporated

PCI Express Signal Switch

Diodes offer a broad portfolio of high-speed differential signal switches with 3dB bandwidth in excess of 16GHz and specifically designed to enable a broad range of peripheral connectivity applications up to 32Gb/s including USB 3.2 Gen1, USB 3.2 Gen2, PCIe 2.0, PCIe 3.0, PCIe 4.0, PICe 5.0, Thunderbolt™ 2 & 3, SAS2.0, SAS3.0, SATA3.0, DP 2.1, HDMI 2.1, XAUI/R-XAUI, GE and 10GE. In addition, we also provide high-speed DDR3 and DDR4 signal switches with single-ended bandwidth in excess of 6GHz for Non Volatile DIMM (NVDIMM) and SSD applications.

PCI Express Signal Switch family offers 3dB bandwidth in excess of 16GHz and can be used not only for PCI express Gen1 (2.5Gb/s), Gen 2 (5Gb/s), Gen 3 (8Gb/s), Gen 4 (16Gbps), Gen 5 (32Gbps) but also for any applications with data rates up to 32Gb/s. The PCIe Gen 4 switches have low insertion loss (-2.7dB at 16GHz), low return loss (-10.8dB at 16 GHz), low crosstalk (-30dB at 16 GHz) and low off isolation (- 15dB at 16 GHz). Diodes switches operate at ultra-low current in small packaging (QFN) for a wide range of applications including PC, Notebook, Server, Network, Telecom, Multimedia, and Embedded segments. Developers can choose 1:2, 1:3, 1:4, 2x2 matrix configurations.
