NXP Delivers Industry’s First 10 Gbps CMOS Multiplexer/Demultiplexer Switch

March 15, 2011

CBTL02043 supports high-bandwidth systems while minimizing power consumption

Eindhoven, Netherlands and San Jose, California, March 15, 2011 – NXP Semiconductors N.V. (Nasdaq: NXPI) today announced the availability of the CBTL02043, a multiplexer/demultiplexer (mux/demux) switch featuring the highest speed implementation in the industry. Providing switching speeds of up to 10 Gbps, the CBTL02043 maintains low power consumption and low power loss, and is designed to support rapidly evolving high-speed computing standards for desktop, mobile and enterprise systems such as PCIe Gen3, USB3.0, DisplayPort v1.2 and SAS/SATA 6 Gbps.

The CBTL02043 can switch two differential signals to one of two locations, while providing low signal attenuation. Using NXP’s high-bandwidth CMOS pass-gate technology, the 2:1 mux/demux switch minimizes switch impedance and allows for expansion of existing high-speed ports, contributing to higher bandwidth and lower insertion loss. Providing minimized channel-to-channel skew and crosstalk, the CBTL02043 is delivered in a very small form factor supporting two separate pinout configurations, optimized to match different application layouts.

Facts / Highlights:

Key features of the NXP CBTL02043A/B high-speed multiplexer/demultiplexer switch:

  • Switching speeds of up to 10 Gbps
  • Support for standards such as PCIe Gen3, USB3.0, DisplayPort v1.2 and SAS/SATA 6 Gbps
  • High bandwidth at 10 GHz at -3dB
