10Gbps Automotive-Compliant Crossbar Switch from Diodes Incorporated Simplifies In-Vehicle USB-C Connectivity

Plano, Texas – May 2, 2024 – Diodes Incorporated (Diodes) (Nasdaq: DIOD) brings extra convenience and performance to state-of-the-art in-car connectivity with the introduction of its 10Gbps automotive-compliant* crossbar switch. Designed for routing USB 3.2 and DisplayPort™ 2.1 signals through a USB Type-C® connector, Diodes’ new switch, the PI3USB31532Q, ensures high signal integrity and saves power compared to a conventional crossbar multiplexer and ReDriver™. This crossbar switch is targeted for use in rear-seat entertainment systems and smart cockpits with their large, high-definition displays.

The PI3USB31532Q supports three configuration modes with USB Type-C compliance, providing a range of options for designers. It can connect a single lane of USB 3.2 Gen 2 to the USB Type-C connector; connect one lane of USB 3.2 Gen 2 and two channels of DP 2.1 UHBR10; or connect four channels of DP 2.1 UHBR10. When configured for DisplayPort, the PI3USB31532Q also connects the complementary AUX channels to the USB Type-C sideband pins: SBU1 and SBU2. Its configuration is controlled by I2C or on-chip logic using four external pins.

Packaged in the 40-pin W-QFN3060-40 and occupying only 3mm x 6mm, the PI3USB31532Q delivers flexibility and performance with the advantage of a space-saving outline. High signal integrity is assured with its -3dB bandwidth of 8.3GHz, and low insertion loss, return loss, and crosstalk of -1.7dB, -15dB, and -38dB respectively at 10Gbps.

The new crossbar switch is automotive compliant*—qualified to AEC-Q100 Grade 2, allowing use in environments exposed to temperatures from
-40°C to +105°C, manufactured in IATF 16949 certified facilities, and is PPAP capable. The PI3USB31532Q is available at $1.10 in 3,500-piece quantities.

Designing Robust 5G Power Amplifiers for the Real World

Sponsored by Keysight

Simulating 5G power amplifier (PA) designs at the component and system levels with authentic modulation and high-fidelity behavioral models increases predictability, lowers risk, and shrinks schedules. Simulation software enables multi-technology layout and multi-domain analysis, evaluating the impacts of 5G PA design choices while delivering accurate results in a single virtual workspace. This application note delves into how authentic modulation enhances predictability and performance in 5G millimeter-wave systems.
