Maxim IC MAX14950 PCI Express 3.0 Equalizer

March 31st, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Assume that you have a very long trace of differential PCIs microstrip, using the 5 GT/s PCI Express 2.0 or the latest 8 GT/s PCI Express 3.0 on your PCB. With the long trace length, you are likely to see signal degradation due to the skin effect, Intel Symbol Interference or the signal path discontinuity by the time the signal reaches the receiver.

The degradation in the signal is especially marked for the PCI Express 3.0 at 8.0 GT/sec. Maxim-IC provides a solution for the maintaining the Signal Integrity using its MAX14950 IC. MAX14950 is available in 42 pin TQFN package and contains quad PCIe equalizers. While the MAX14950 is more likely to be used for the PCI Express 2.0 ( 5 GT/sec) and PCI Express 3.0 ( 8 GT/s), it is backward compatible with the earlier PCI Express 1.0 ( 2.5 GT/sec).

The Maxim IC MAX14950 is typically used at transmitter as well as the receiver end. There are two types of controls available at the Maxim IC MAX14950 – one if the chip is place right at next to the transmitter and another if the chip is placed just before the receiver. The INEQ1 and INEQ0 pics control the Input Equalization and the Pins OEQ2, OEQ1, OEQ0 are used for preshoot. The amount of the input equalization or the outout preshoot is programmable depending upon the amount of equalization.

If you are concerned about the channel loss and eye closing, the Maxim IC MAX14950 is something you would like to consider in your design. You may experiment with the different settings of the INEQ1 and INEQ0 at the receiver and and with OEQ2, OEQ1, OEQ0 at the transmitter end to see which one gets you better result. Using the Maxim IC MAX14950, you can typically extend the range to 20 inch of length on the PCB.

    The history of the Hermit Crabs connects them to Camera Obscura in ways apart from the striking
    similarity in sound. Or, maybe the seven members of the group became your
    coffeehouse band, as they often are, while staying
    up studying or plowing through work. “Cat’s in the Cupboard” by Pete Townshend: The Who guitarist was at his prime on Empty Glass, the
    solo album he released right after the death of drummer
    Keith Moon. Gangsta Rap; Hip-Hop; Urban; Hardcore Rap Artists: Run-DMC;
    Public Enemy; Dr. “Suki” by Belle and Sebastian: The indie group led by Stuart Murdoch
    and Stevie Jackson continue to be an underappreciated
    gift to meaningful pop music, as evident in this track.
    ” This song is unlike any other Christmas song because it shows the craziness of just what holidays bring. The album releases this Tuesday and Tickets for Thursday’s show are still available through Constitution Hall box office. This is a collection of the songs that always get me dancing. 8 – Seasons in the Sun by Westlife (2007) the remake of the 1974 hit by T. The Fox In The Snow from If You’re Feeling Sinister Here, Belle and Sebastian leave behind some of their pop production flash and concentrate on bringing the emotion.

    A good way to accomplish that goal would be to listen to
    “nice” songs. Much as I enjoy the band and this
    first outing, that’s just far too hit-and-miss a record for something that’s
    supposed to be so representative of the band’s essence, and such
    a pinnacle of their legend. Bob Dylan: Easy; all you need is
    a crazy light brown-haired wig. Shortly afterward,
    Hal falls in love with Rosemary (Gwyneth Paltrow) who he sees as
    thin and gorgeous, while in reality she is significantly overweight.
    Three years later, when California Snow story went on hiatus, Whittle
    was inspired to found The Hermit Crabs. Those curves may have been in the
    minds of the people who wrote some of the songs featuring girls’ names in their titles.

    “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number” by Steely Dan: The collaboration of
    Donald Fagen and Walter Becker spawned many enduring songs, and this one is the most recognized track from the Pretzel
    Logic album. Religious Sub-genres: Christian; Contemporary Christian; Inspirational; Gospel; Chant; Meditative;
    Liturgical; Tibetan; Sung Prayers. The director, Todd Solondz, contacted Belle and Sebastian to write the film’s entire soundtrack.
    Classy, might be a good word to apply here, as everything
    about My Maudlin Career feels sophisticated and grown up like an orchestra approaching a pop record.

    So round up your friends and either get in on the text alert of be the guest of someone that has already spent the cash.
    Much as I enjoy the band and this first outing, that’s just far too hit-and-miss
    a record for something that’s supposed to be so representative of the band’s essence, and such a pinnacle of their legend.
    Previous All Tommorow’s Parties curators include Mogwai, Belle
    and Sebastian and even ‘The Simpsons’ creator Matt
    Groening. Gangsta Rap; Hip-Hop; Urban; Hardcore Rap Artists: Run-DMC; Public Enemy; Dr.
    a Kelz, Icelantic Singer-Songwriter Bjork, and the Scottish indie pop band Belle and Sebastian will
    perform at the three day July fest this year. “Cups” by
    Anna Kendrick: The actress shows off her singing talents on this
    song from the soundtrack to the film Pitch Perfect.
    The whole album was recorded in two-hour sessions over the course of two midnights, with stars far beyond
    in the night sky, and the work never sounds truncated or rushed, rather it is peaceful and inspected through the inside.
    Often overlooked, it’s one of the most ridiculous Christmas songs (and quite possibly most cheesy) out there.
    The term free running was coined in the film as an translation of the word parkour in English, but it came to mean later on slightly different things than the original parkour was.
    Tigermilk, while being the first *official* release by the band,
    was a pretty limited one’something to the tune of only a thousand or so copies initially
    pressed.
