TI Introduces Advanced Signal Conditioners

Texas Instruments 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), which use high-performance BiCMOS SiGe process technology, expand TI's existing 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. v

TI said the new signal conditioners are capable of extending reach to exceed 50+ inches of FR-4 backplane or 20 meters of 26-AWG copper cable.
