DS160PR810: Ethernet Signal Redriving

Part Number: DS160PR810
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TUSB522P, TUSB1002A

Hi there,

Reading through the data sheet, the application information states the device is protocol agnostic, please correct me if I am wrong, but  am I correct in thinking this would be suitable for Ethernet applications as well? 

If not could you direct me to a part number that can handle Ethernet signals?

Also do you have a version of this chip, which can redrive USB 1, 2, 3 D+/D- signals?

Many thanks for your time

  • Hi Andrew,

    Main application for this part is PCIe or SAS or other protocols where there is link training. Meaning devices on both ends of the part send/receive non-NRZ data to train each others receiver given the transmission media at hand. 

    There are parts for USB and i will allow my other collegues to comment on your question.


  • Hi Nasser

    Thank you for your reply, as I understand it, Ethernet does use link training, so this part could work with Ethernet. Slight smile

    I will have to give it a try/simulation.

    Kind regards

    When you say USB1, 2, 3, are you referring to USB Full Speed, High Speed, and SuperSpeed signaling?

    For USB high speed, please see TUSB21x family.

    For USB SuperSpeed, please see TUSB522P (5G), TUSB1002A (10G), TUSB546 (5G Type-C), and TUSB1046/1146(10G USB Type-C).
