Description

The MAX4951AE dual-channel buffer is designed to redrive serial-ATA (SATA) I and SATA II signals and can survive ESD events up to ±8kV Human Body Model (HBM). The MAX4951AE can be placed near an eSATA connector to overcome board losses and produce an eSATA-compliant signal level. This device is Serial ATA Revision 2.6 (gold standard)-compliant, while overcoming losses in the PCB and eSATA connector.

The MAX4951AE features low standby current for power-sensitive applications. This device features hardware SATA-drive cable detection, keeping the power low in standby mode.

The MAX4951AE preserves signal integrity at the receiver by reestablishing full output levels. It reduces the total system jitter (TJ) by squaring up the signal and providing excellent return loss match to the source. This device features channel-independent digital boost controls to drive SATA outputs over normal trace lengths and eSATA connector. SATA Out-Of-Band (OOB) signaling is supported using high-speed amplitude detection on the inputs, and squelch on the corresponding outputs. Inputs and outputs are all internally 50Ω terminated.

The MAX4951AE operates from a single +3.3V (typ) supply and is available in a small, 4mm x 4mm, TQFN package with flow-through traces for ease of layout. This device is specified over the 0°C to +70°C operating temperature range.
