PTN36241G Block Diagram

The superior differential signal conditioning and enhancement capability of PTN36241G IC makes it deliver significant flexibility and performance scaling for various systems with different PCB trace and cable channel conditions and still benefit from optimum power consumption. PTN36241G is a very small, low power SuperSpeed USB 3.0 redriver IC that enhances signal quality by performing receive equalization on the deteriorated input signal followed by transmit de-emphasis maximizing system link performance for mobile applications.

PTN36241G is powered from a 1.8V supply and is available in a small X2QFN package (1.25 mm x 2.1 mm x 0.35 mm) with 0.4 mm pitch.

Why Used

  • Power supply: VDD = 1.8 V (typical)
