Pericom Semiconductor has released eight NanoSwitch digital bus switch products that are ideally suited to address the operational requirements of next generation Servers, RAID, Super VGA, Memory Bank Switching, and High-performance Networking/Telecom Backplanes. The PI3CH family of Low-voltage (2.5V/3.3V), High-bandwidth (500MHz) Bus Switches offer expanded performance capabilities that meet the challenges of advanced performance communication buses like PCI-X, as well as emerging DDR-I / DDR-2 memory standards, and also simplifies the I/O migration from parallel to serial differential signaling standards. Key performance features in this product family include very flat On-Resistance (5 Ohm - Flat) across the full device bandwidth, and very low On/Off Capacitance (5-10pF) that enables the Switches to be used in applications to reduce bus loading. The 5V I/O tolerance and beyond rail-to-rail capability makes the PI3CH Switches ideal for bridging legacy 5V I/O based platforms to next generation 2.5V/3V systems. The product line extension offers new performance alternatives never believed possible. Pericom Semiconductor Corp, San Jose, CA 95131, USA.
