A look at redrivers in mobile devices

Mobile phones need high speed serial links, but many of these links will not work without the help of a redriver. That is because at multi-gigabit speeds, transmission line effects become important and signals degrade, often to the point of no longer meeting electrical specifications. As Pericom explain, there are a number of signal loss effects that impact the serial link in small footprint mobile platforms.
