PCI-SIG Compliant Quad Re-Driver

Add to Watch List

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.


  • PCIe 1.1 compliant
  • Multi-rate operation from 1.25Gb/s to 8Gb/s
  • Low power dissipation - 70mW per channel
  • Programmable high gain input equalization--19 settings of from 0 to 24dB
  • 255 programmable settings of output swing controls covering 0 to 1250mVpp
  • 8 programmable settings of LOS (Loss of Signals) to avoid signal noise propagating from input sources to outputs.
  • Support of OOB (Out of Band) feature for SAS/SATA applications with the same part
  • On-chip channel diagnostics
  • Independent channel operation
  • I2C control interface
  • Low latency (< 1 bit period)
  • Pin compatible with GN1406
