Single-channel SuperSpeed USB 3.0

Supporting data signaling rate of 5 Gbit/s, the PTN36221A is a small, low power, high performance SuperSpeed USB 3.0 redriver that enhances signal quality by performing receive equalization on the deteriorated input signal followed by transmit de-emphasis maximizing system link performance.

Without host software intervention, the PTN36221A has built-in advanced power management capability that enables significant power saving under various different USB 3.0 Low-power modes (U2/U3). The device performs these actions without host software intervention and conserves power.
