With its sights set on half of the projected 519 million CPU production in 2013, Pericom Semiconductor Corp. has rolled out 12 new connectivity products for the latest CPU chipsets' innovative switching, signal conditioning and charge controller solutions.

Pericom's latest multiproduct launch, held at the Technology Showcase of the Intel Developer Forum in Beijing, included six SATA/eSATA and USB 3.0 ReDriver signal conditioners offering industry-lowest operating and standby power; two USB PowerNap Charger Controllers offering what the company claims as industry-lowest operating power and unique power down modes; two VGA analog switches that integrate most external components; two high-speed signal switches for USB 2.0; and a DisplayPort (DP) to TMDS video signals.

For signal conditioning, the new multiproduct offering includes the new single and dual-port USB 3.0 5Gb/s ReDrivers that Pericom believes are the industry-smallest packages and lowest power, two new SATA 3.0 6Gb/s ReDrivers offer industry-lowest operating, standby, idle, HDD unplug power, and multisupply voltage options.

For USB charging, both new USB PowerNap Charger Controllers are fully integrated charger control sleep-and-charge ICs that feature 'power off' charging, small packages, and support for the new 1.2 charger specification.

For signal switching, the two new 1:2 VGA video switches offer fully-integrated all-VGA-signals switching, fully-integrated video buffers, and dual-control logic. The video-switch level shifter, on the other hand, combines dual mode DP to TMDS switching and level shifting. Also unveiled is a high-speed USB signal switch

According to Pericom, its newest multiproduct support offers value-added options, attain industry best performance targets and assist in interfacing the latest core chipset functions to volume desktop, notebook and tablet end-user features.
