Part Number: DS125BR800
While creating a PCIe x8 reDriver Card, i want to use two DS125BR800 chips: one for TX and second one for RX channels. Both chips should read Equalization Info from on-board EEPROM. According Application Report SNLA228 (Page 4), to eliminate conflicts with EEPROM, i should connect ALL_DONE of the first DS125BR800 with READ_EN of the second DS125BR800.
The question is: should I connect ALL_DONE with READ_EN directly, or should i use a transistor to create a transition from high to low (Page 4 of the Datasheet DS125BR800 says, that "When using an External EEPROM, a transition from high to low starts the load from the external EEPROM")?
Thank you for response.
The ALL_DONE output will create the transition by itself, no external transistor is needed. It will go high during power-up and then transition to "low" when the device has completed EEPROM load. Allowing the next device to start.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.
