Diodes Incorporated PI2DPX1066, PI2DPX1217 and PI2DPX1263 Redrivers

USB Type-C/DisplayPort linear redrivers offer high signal integrity and low-power operation

Diodes Incorporated has expanded its portfolio of linear ReDriver™ ICs with the introduction of the 1.8V PI2DPX1066, PI2DPX1217, and PI2DPX1263 redrivers for USB Type-C® and DisplayPort™ (DP) 2.0 interfaces.


Operating at a lower supply voltage and consuming less power than competing devices, the redrivers enable manufacturers of consumer, computing and communications equipment to achieve higher system power efficiency, while also saving board space and providing flexible implementation options.


The PI2DPX1066 and PI2DPX1217 are 1.8V-rated ReDriver ICs in a 4-to-4 channel configuration for use in USB Type-C systems, in which they can support data rates of 10Gbits/s per channel. Both devices feature four different modes:

  • SuperSpeed USB 10Gbits/s
  • SuperSpeed USB 20Gbits/s
  • SuperSpeed USB 10Gbits/s and 2-lane DP1.4/DP2.0, supporting Ultra-High Bit Rate 10 (UHBR10)
  • 4-lane DP1.4/DP2.0, UHBR10


Design engineers can configure these USB Type-C redrivers via their I2C interface. This gives the option to choose between 16 different equalizer settings and four flat-gain settings. These protocol-agnostic devices are transparent to channel link training, and operate with latency of less than 300ps and very high signal integrity.


The PI2DPX1066 powers up in a high-impedance safe state for notebook PCs, while the PI2DPX1217 reverts to a default USB bypass state when powering up, as needed in smartphones.


Also operating at 1.8V, the PI2DPX1263 is a 4-channel linear ReDriver IC for use in DP2.0 and DP1.4 systems. Like the PI2DPX1066 and PI2DPX1217, the PI2DPX1263 has a 10Gbits/s maximum data rate. DisplayPort transmission modes supported include:

  • UHBR10 – DP2.0 @ 10Gbits/s
  • HBR3 – DP1.4 @ 8.1Gbits/s
  • HBR2 – DP1.2 @ 5.4Gbits/s
  • HBR – DP1.1 @ 2.7Gbits/s
  • Reduced Bit Rate (RBR) – DP1.0 @ 1.62Gbits/s


The I2C interface enables equalizer and flat-gain adjustment, to compensate for channel loss and eliminate inter-symbol interference jitter, and thus maintain high signal integrity.


The PI2DPX1066, PI2DPX1217, and PI2DPX1263 are supplied in a low-profile 32-pin TQFN package measuring 2.85mm x 4.5mm x 0.35mm.
