The robust "invisible to the user" device will extend the reach of high speed digital signals without using any external system power or pc board real estate. It is intended for use in high speed (>2Gb/s) 100 Ohm differential pair interconnect applications. The unique design helps to offset those high frequency losses endemic to high speed digital interconnect paths that are primarily dispersive in nature. As an added benefit of its high pass characteristics, Inter Symbol Interference (ISI) is reduced as well as deterministic jitter. It is invaluable when trying to squeeze the last meter out of a cabling system that had been previously designed for slower data rate signals. Additionally, because of the nature of the equalizer it can be placed anywhere in the transmission path that is convenient to the system designer.
Up to 50% increase in high-speed signaling cable length
Up to two times increase in data rate for given interconnect length
Improve the margin at the receiver end for a given signal performance
Re-use existing wire and cable to drive higher data rate signals
Entirely passive (no extra power required)
