THine Introduces 4Gbps, Low Voltage Differential Transceiver IC
February 04, 2020
The THCS251 GPIO / LVCMOS transceiver IC can aggregate multiple lines of different data rates into just 4 lines that can be received and transmitted in the same IC.
THine, a provider of high-speed serial interfaces and image signal processing solutions, released the THCS251 GPIO / LVCMOS transceiver IC, which can aggregate multiple lines of different data rates into just 4 lines that can be received and transmitted in the same IC. Targeting product applications where hinges or slip rings limit the number of wires that carry signals through them, the THCS251 serializes and aggregates up to 37 lines into a pair of 4Gbps high speed differential signals.
THCS251 also deserializes and de-aggregates the differential signals back to the original 37 lines, allowing implementations of both the receiver and transmit directions with only 4 lines. The high-speed differential signal path of the THCS251 is supported by 8B10B encoding and built-in adaptive equalization, allowing a distance of greater than 15 meters with standard cables.
