DS125BR820EVM: 12.5 Gbps 8-Channel Repeater with Equalization Evaluation Module
The DS125BR820EVM – SMA evaluation kit provides a complete high bandwidth platform to evaluate the 40GbE, PCIe, and SAS/SATA signal conditioning features of the Texas Instruments DS125BR820 repeater/redriver. The DS125BR820EVM can be used for standard compliance testing, performance evaluation, and initial system prototyping. The SMA edge launch connectors used for the DS125BR820EVM will interface to multiple system connector types via commercially available breakout cables, adaptors, and boards (not included). This flexible connectivity enables integrated system level testing between TI repeaters and 3rd party ASIC/FPGA host boards.
