TI's advanced signal conditioners deliver industry's highest performance at lowest power

DALLAS, USA: Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) introduced 10 signal conditioners designed to drive high-speed interface standards such as 10G/40G/100G Ethernet, 10G-KR (802.3ap), InfiniBand, Fibre Channel and CPRI.

The new integrated circuits (ICs) join a comprehensive family of repeaters and retimers that combat signal impairments caused by insertion loss, jitter, reflections and crosstalk in high-speed enterprise servers, routers and switches. Manufactured using TI's high-performance BiCMOS SiGe process technology, these new signal conditioners deliver the industry's highest signal reach performance at less than 6-mW per gigabit.

"As transmission rates increase, signal integrity requirements become more stringent," said Linley Group senior analyst, Jag Bolaria. "Highly integrated ASIC and ASSP solutions with shrinking transistor geometries, lower voltage rails and lower output voltages further compound the problem, making systems more susceptible to random jitter and crosstalk interference. TI's new retimer and repeater products resolve these complex signal integrity impairments while consuming low power."
