Texas Instruments Inc.(TI) has just announced the release of their dual-channel, single-lane SATA redriver and signal conditioner, offering what the maker says is the lowest active power and lowest automatic low-power (ALP) mode of any 6Gbit/s redriver/equalizer available to date. The SN75LVCP601 features a maximum active power consumption of 290mW, or about 50 percent less than the nearest class contender. Such property extends critical battery life in portable electronics, particularly for notebook PCs or netbooks.

Other key features and properties of the SN75LVCP601 include: reconditioning and driving of high-speed signals which propagate over longer distances, permitting optimal performance for SATA drives of any speed (1.5G/3.0G/6.0G) without changing equalization or de-emphasis channel settings; selectable equalization, de-emphasis, and integrated output squelch, giving optimized performance settings for system implementation at low power; and ALP mode which consumes only 10mA (maximum), extending battery life on portable devices if no external devices are connected to the eSATA port. The solution supports SuperSpeed USB, PCI Express and DisplayPort.

Pricing and availability: The SN75LVCP601 comes in a 20-pin QFN package with suggested price of $2.00 each, currently offered in quantities of 1,000.
