PS8710 – Single Port USB 3.0 Repeater, Bidirectional

USB 3.0 5Gb/s Bidirectional Repeater / Redriver

PS8710A and PS8710B are bidirectional USB 3.0 repeater/redriver devices that provide signal conditioning and signal path length extension. The on-chip adaptive equalization circuits restore signal integrity by automatically compensating for signal loss due to PCB traces, connectors, and/or the USB cable. Device equalization settings change automatically under variable media conditions, such as when using of different USB cables.

The PS8710A/B devices consume very low power, especially the PS8710A which uses a single 1.5V supply. The devices support full USB 3.0 power management. For battery powered applications, an additional automatic power saving mode can be enabled that suspends device operation between data packets. Automatic USB device plug/unplug or enable/disable is detected through Rx termination sensing.
