We've DIN SN75LVCP601 and customer is using it as SATA redriver with Skylake. The redriver is on rear board and the chipset is on the front board. But they met the phenomenon that SATA port cannot find HDD.
For their last generation design, there's no redriver on the board and SATA works well.
We're thinking that maybe SN75LVCP601 have special requirement for DE/QE setting or for Skylake which may cause this phenomenon? Could you please give some comments on that?
