SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Analogix Semiconductor, Inc. today announced the availability of its ANX7451, second generation 10 Gbps USB-C re-timer capable of supporting USB 3.2 Gen2 data rates and DisplayPort 1.4a at 8.1 Gbps for next generation 10G mobile devices which require re-timers to drive appreciable distances.
Designed for mobile applications, the ANX7451 uses a 3.3mm x 4.8mm LGA-34 package and it features an even lower power consumption, integrated clock source, and improved robustness of DisplayPort 1.4a. It is based on SRIS and BLR architectures and it complies with USB 3.2 Appendix E requirements, working seamlessly through the daisy chaining of multiple re-timers.
"As smartphones move to 10Gbps USB-C, the ANX7451 enables high bandwidth data and video transport of upcoming application processors over USB-C," said Michael Ching, vice president of marketing for Analogix. "The ANX7451 is essential in maintaining signal integrity in flexible mobile system boards, as well as in the case of longer cable connection applications such as data synchronization, docking stations, and tethered mobile VR."
The ANX7451 re-timer recovers and reinstates high-speed signals at both ends of active cables spanning from 2 up to 5 meters. This allows low-cost cable solutions to meet the performance and compliance requirements of high-speed DisplayPort and USB 3.2 signals.
Smartphone designs using application processors without an integrated USB-C power delivery (PD) port controller can use the ANX7411 companion, which integrates the logic to manage cable attach and detach, orientation, and role detection, providing full USB PD 3.0 support.
The ANX7451 is now sampling and will ship in mass production in Q3 2019.
Product demonstrations of 10G re-timers for smartphones, as well as next generation SlimPortÃ,Â® display controllers for AR/VR and dual-display solutions, are taking place during this week's Mobile World Congress 2019 at the Analogix meeting room #2C31MR in Hall 2 at Fira Gran Via in Barcelona.
