Texas Instruments DS125DF111 Low Power Multi-Rate 2-Channel Retimer is a dual channel (1-lane bidirectional) retimer with integrated signal conditioning. The DS125DF111 includes an input Continuous-Time Linear Equalizer (CTLE), clock and data recovery (CDR) and transmit driver on each channel. The DS125DF111 with its on-chip Decision Feedback Equalizer (DFE) can enhance the reach and OD: 600 to 1300 mVp-p robustness of long, lossy, cross-talk-impaired high speed serial links to achieve BER < 1x10-15. For less demanding applications/interconnects, the DFE can be switched off and achieve the same BER Legacy Support performance. The DS125DF111 and DS110DF111 devices are pin-compatible. Each channel of the DS125DF111 independently locks to specific serial data at data rates within the primary range of 9.8 to 12.5 Gbps or to any supported sub-rate of these data rates. Supported datarates can be selected via SMBus using a preprogrammed table or customized as required. This simplifies system design and lowers overall cost.

Texas Instruments ISO5500 2.5A Isolated IGBT / MOSFET Gate Driver is an isolated gate driver for IGBTs and MOSFETs with power ratings of up to IC = 150A and VCE = 1200V. Input TTL logic and output power stage are separated by a capacitive, silicon dioxide (SiO2), isolation barrier. When used in conjunction with isolated power supplies, the device blocks high voltage, isolates ground, and prevents noise currents from entering the local ground and interfering with or damaging sensitive circuitry. TI ISO5500 Gate Driver provides over-current protection (DESAT) to an IGBT or MOSFET while an Undervoltage Lockout circuit (UVLO) monitors the output power supply to ensure sufficient gate drive voltage. If the output supply drops below 12V, the UVLO turns the power transistor off by driving the gate drive output to a logic low state.
