A new set of 8-channel 28Gbps repeater IC devices have been introduced by Broadcom. The BCM82109 and BCM82181 are designed for network backplane and front panel applications.

The BCM82109 is an 8-channel unidirectional repeater device and is footprint compatible to the Broadcom BCM82209 unidirectional re-timer device. The BCM82181 is an 8-channel bi-directional repeater device which is footprint compatible to the Broadcom BCM82381 bi-directional re-timer device. The new devices are designed to address low power requirements while providing sufficient link performance to meet the IEEE 802.3 25/100GbE and 32GFC requirements for backplane, front panel and active copper applications.

“With the addition of the BCM82109 and BCM82181 low power 28Gbps repeater devices, Broadcom now has a complete portfolio of signal conditioning solutions allowing our expanded customer base to solve a myriad of signal integrity challenges at 25/28Gbps signalling,” said Lorenzo Longo, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Physical Layer Products Division at Broadcom.
