PCI and PCI Express (PCIe) Technology
Roll over Pericom components to browse to details…
Pericom has the broadest portfolio of PCI Express (PCIe) products in the industry, including the timing, switching, muxing, and signal conditioning solutions you need to support PCIe 2.0 (5 Gbps), PCIe 3.0 (8 Gbps), 10 Gbps Ethernet, and beyond. With a comprehensive variety of families architected to work together efficiently, Pericom provides a one-stop source for all your PCI Express signaling needs.
The foundation of any high-speed interface is signal integrity. When signal integrity suffers, so does system performance and reliability. Different types of noise and interference – including jitter, attenuation, and crosstalk – degrade signal quality, increasing the bit error rate (BER) and reducing the distance over which signals can be reliably transmitted. Pericom’s industry-leading signal conditioning technology maintains signal quality over longer distances and in the presence of more environmental noise. The result is higher reliability, greater layout flexibility, and lower system cost through the ability to use less expensive PCB materials.
Available signal conditioning products include:
- Timing ICs minimize clock jitter that degrades signal integrity at the source
- ReDrivers / Repeaters compensate for known channel losses at the transmitter and restore signal integrity at the receiver
- Signal Switches / Multiplexers provide the most efficient and clear signal routing
- Packet Switches efficiently aggregate multiple I/O devices without compromising signal integrity
- Bridges enable reliable, turn-key connectivity between PCIe hosts and peripherals
The Pericom Advantage
Unsurpassed Signal Quality: Pericom’s components provide the lowest jitter and attenuation for the highest performance in the industry.*
Low Crosstalk: Pericom has minimized crosstalk to keep channel-to-channel and part-to-part skew low, enabling reliable signaling over greater trace and cable lengths.
Power Efficiency: Pericom architects its components for both low power operation and efficient power consumption. Components also support chip- and system-level power control hooks so you can optimize power management as part of the complete system.
Flexible Footprint: Pericom offers a variety of package sizes to meet the specific cost, performance, and power needs of your application, including the smallest PCIe switch in the industry
