Texas Instruments  DS38EP100SD/NOPB

TI’s Power-saver equalizer compensates for transmission medium losses and minimizes medium-induced deterministic jitter. Performance is ensured over the full range of 1 to 5 Gbps. The DS38EP100 requires no power to operate. The equalizer operates anywhere in the data path to minimize media-induced deterministic jitter in both FR4 and cable applications. Symmetric I/O structures support full duplex or half duplex applications. Linear compensation is provided independent of line coding or protocol. The device is ideal for both bi-level and multi-level signaling.

The equalizer is available in a 6 pin leadless WSON package with a space saving 2.2 mm X 2.5 mm footprint. This tiny package provides maximum flexibility in placement and routing of the Power-saver equalizer.
