NXP Semiconductors has just announced the availability of the industry's first high-speed multiplexer/switch to support USB 3.0 and PCI Express Gen 3, reaching switching speeds of up to 8 Gbit/s. The NXP's CBTU04083 high-speed switch also supports other emerging standards including 6 Gbit/s SATA/SAS and Display Port v1.2 HBR2 at 5.4Gbit/s. By supporting these new standards, the NXP CBTU04083 multiplexer/switch enables straightforward solution to demanding performance and signal integrity requirements of future high-end computing products of system designers. The high-speed switch is now in volume production and samples are readily available.

Marketing manager for NXP Semiconductors (Interface Products) Joe Kochanski says, "Given the high level of interest in USB 3.0, which delivers more than ten times the speed of USB 2.0, there is significant demand for high-performance computing products implementing the new standard. Similarly, forward-thinking designers are moving forward with system designs supporting PCIe Gen3 at 8 Gbit/s, which offers nearly double the signaling rate of Gen2 at 5Gbit/s."

The NXP CBTU04083 is a 4-differential channel, 2:1 multiplexer/demultiplexer switch with speeds up to 8.0 Gbit/s. Using innovative design techniques, NXP has minimized the On-resistance and insertion loss of the switch so that attenuation is negligible. It also minimized the channel-to-channel skew as well as channel-to-channel crosstalk.

Kochanski proclaims that the addition of the CBTU04083 to their portfolio of High Performance Mixed Signal products underlines NXP's commitment to supporting leading-edge high-speed serial interface technology.
