The ISL36111 is a settable single-channel receive-side equalizer with extended functionality for advanced protocols operating with line rates up to 11. 1Gb/s such as 10G Ethernet. The ISL36111 compensates for the frequency dependent attenuation of copper twin-axial cables, extending the signal reach up to at least 10m on 28AWG cable. The small form factor, highly-integrated design is ideal for high-density data transmission applications including active copper cable assemblies. The equalizing filter within the ISL36111 can be set to provide optimal signal fidelity for a given media and length. The compensation level for the filter is set by two external control pins. Operating on a single 1. 2V power supply, the ISL36111 enables channel throughputs of 10Gb/s to 11. 1Gb/s while supporting lower data rates including 8. 5, 6. 25, 5, 4. 25, 3. 125, and 2. 5Gb/s. The ISL36111 uses current mode logic (CML) input/output and is packaged in a 3mmx3mm 16 lead QFN. The device supports LOS functionality for module applications.
