Diodes’ PCIe 4.0 ReDriver Extends PCB Trace Lengths While Reducing Power Consumption

Article By : Diodes Inc.

Diodes has strengthened its range of PCIe solutions with the addition of a new high-speed data rate ReDriver device.

Diodes Inc. has further strengthened its range of PCIe solutions with the addition of a new high-speed data rate ReDriver device. The DIODES PI2EQX16924 is the industry’s first available PCIe 4.0 ReDriver that operates from a 1.8V voltage rail, where competing solutions have to use a 3.3V rail. It addresses a broad variety of computing and data communication applications.

The PI2EQX16924 only consumes 288mW and 27mW respectively when in active and low-power modes, particularly important for saving battery charge in portable applications.

Power and Connectivity Components in IoT Designs and Applications

John Chien, Sr. FAE Manager at Diodes Inc., will discuss how device manufacturers are innovating their power and connectivity components to keep pace with the ever-increasing technical requirements of new IoT system designs and applications.

The device features four differential channels that are independently configurable in terms of receiver equalization and flat gain. This mitigates inter-symbol interference and allows signal loss compensation, so that longer PCB trace lengths can be achieved. As the I2C interface is used for such configuration work, firmware requirements are minimal.

The PI2EQX16924 is capable of handling data rates up to 16Gbps. The device is compliant with PCIe 4.0 and backwards compatible with PCIe 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 generations. An industrial temperature range from -40°C to 85°C is supported.

The PI2EQX16924 ReDriver is supplied in a 32-pin X2-QFN package.
