Pericom Semiconductor Corp. has released a class of switch products that enables the handling of differential broadband signals in advanced high-bandwidth applications.

The PI3USBxx (USB), PI3DBVxx (Video) and next-generation PI3Lxx (LAN) broadband switches provide wide operating bandwidths up to 700MHz for TMDS and LVDS signaling standards by simultaneously minimizing both on-resistance and on-capacitance. This technology also provides attributes in the memory product segment by offering customers the ability to reduce bus loading.

The PI3USB differential switch supports high-speed differential signaling protocols like USB2.0, LVDS and IEEE 1394, and features a channel-to-channel matching of <0.5 ohms and bandwidth of >500MHz. The PI3DBV video switch has a >400MHz bandwidth and true bi-directional switching. It supports various video standards including LVDS + TMDS signaling and allows multiplexing between multiple video sources. The PI3L LAN switch supports all 10/100/1000 Ethernet specs, replaces second PHY to support additional ports, and features 5V and 3V supply voltage operation.

Pricing is configuration dependant. A four channel device starts at $1.50 in 500-unit quantities.
