Thunderbolt™ technology is a revolutionary new high-speed computer input/output (I/O) method that offers a quantum leap in data transfer rates compared to other standards. These unprecedented speed requirements place unique demands on the transmission media. Semtech's expertise in the 10Gb/s datacom and experience with high-speed links have given us the unique capability to rise to the challenge and produce the industry’s first high-speed solutions for Thunderbolt™ applications.

Semtech also provides PCIe re-driver solutions as new alternatives for system partitioning and extension. The GN1407 quadPCIe re-driver, and the GN1406 quad retiming re-driver, allow PCI Express to be extended across long cables.
