PS8534 – 4-Channel SATA/SAS 6Gb/s Repeater / Redriver, Unidirectional

NOT RECOMMENDED FOR NEW DESIGNS

SATA/SAS 6Gb/s 4-Channel Unidirectional Redriver

PS8534 is 4-channel, unidirectional SATA/SAS redriver that supports up to 6Gb/s data rate.  The PS8534 is available in two power supply options, supporting a single supply voltage of 1.5V or 3.3V.  In application, the PS8534 compensates for PCB board losses and regenerates high-quality SATA/SAS electrical signals.

PS8534-1 block

The device integrates a programmable equalizer and driver for each of the four channels, and provides signal reconditioning for up to 40 inches of FR4 PCB input-side trace length.  Two PS8534 devices can be used together to support 4 SATA/SAS ports, with one placed close to the SATA/SAS host and the other placed close to the SATA/SAS connector.
