The Industry's First PCI Express® 3.0 Signal-Conditioning Re-Timers
New IDT Re-Timers Latest Members of Broadest Set of PCI Express Solutions for Enterprise Computing Applications
The IDT re-timers are ideal for use in blade servers, enterprise storage and communication systems, and also play an important role in the transition of high-performance platforms to Cloud computing. Servers and storage systems for these distributed Cloud-based computing solutions will be among the first to deploy 8Gbps PCIe 3.0, and IDT re-timers will help ensure optimum performance with this new interface.
The IDT 89HT0808P and 89HT0816P re-timers are the latest members of the comprehensive IDT Signal Integrity Product family, which contains the broadest set of signal conditioning solutions for enterprise computing and communications applications. The new IDT re-timers are the first in the industry to be fully compliant to the new PCIe Automatic Link Equalization procedure, easing system design and enhancing reliability with any PCIe-compliant expansion card or host bus adapter.
The IDT 8-channel 89HT0808P and 16-channel 89HT0816P re-timers support 8Gbps-per-channel communication over twice the distance of standard PCIe 3.0 devices and across typical system backplanes, improving system performance and reliability, and lowering bill of materials costs by reducing the overall design complexity.
The IDT 89HT0808P and 89HT0816P re-timers include a high-performance analog front end, followed by a continuous time-linear equalizer (CTLE), 5-tap decision feedback equalizer (DFE), and clock and data recovery (CDR) unit. This highly sensitive input features dynamic optimization and can restore poor quality signals and eliminate random and deterministic jitter that exceeds the PCIe 3.0 specification.
