Pericom Semiconductor Corp. has expanded its USB 3.0 5Gb ReDriver Signal Conditioning product family with devices that it claims offer the industry’s smallest footprint at 2mmx2mm, and lowest power in both operating (158mW) and slumber mode (3.63mW).
Applications include battery powered mobile devices, such as tablets, smart phones, and notebooks, as well as AC-powered platforms such as servers and networking switches.
Pericom’s USB 3.0 ReDriver family enables end customer platform designers to extend the PCB trace or cable length and preserve signal integrity. The extra signal margin can help assure that the platform will properly recognize and connect to a peripheral USB 3.0 device at USB 3.0 speeds.
