Diodes Inc has launched two combo ReDriver devices that support both SATA3 and PCIe3.0 interfaces with the latest low power standby modes.

The PI3EQX12902E and PI3EQX12904E meet the Modern Standby mode requirements as outlined by Microsoft Corporation, with the linearity and jitter characteristics needed for industrial PC and embedded designs as well as laptops and notebook PCs.

Operating from a 3.3V rail and in standby mode, the single lane PI3EQX12902E consumes 1.7mW with the dual lane PI3EQX12904E consuming 3.3mW, significantly extending battery life. Built-in coupling capacitors help reduce component count and save board space.

The PCIe 3.0/SATA3 combo ReDrivers support data rates up to 8Gbps, delivering heightened signal driving capacity and are transparent to link training. They provide programmable equalization, linear swing, and flat gain capabilities, allowing signal losses to be compensated for extending PCB trace lengths. Their conformance with both PCIe and SATA protocols present OEMs with extremely versatile solutions that can easily be applied to numerous different products.

Supplied in a 30-TQFN (ZL) package format, the PI3EQX12902E is priced at $0.70 each in 3500 piece quantities. The PI3EQX12904E comes in a 42-TQFN (ZH) package and is priced at $1.30 each in 3500 piece quantities.
