PCI-SIG Compliant Quad Re-Driver
The GN1407 is a PCI-SIG compliant quad re-driver designed for 1.25Gbps - 8Gbps communications.
The GN1407 extends the reach and robustness of high-speed serial links by compensating for losses in the transmission medium. Each high-speed input interface features programmable high gain equalization. The GN1407 high-speed serial output interface features low output jitter and allows for amplitude adjustment through the use of a serial control interface. Each channel in the GN1407 can be independently configured or powered down.
