T2M USB USB 3.0/ PCIe 2.0/ SATA 3.0 Combo PHY IP in 40LL

USB 3.0/ PCIe 2.0/ SATA 3.0 Combo PHY IP in 40LL

Description and Features

The combined PHY complies with the PIPE, Serial ATA, PCIe, USB, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and PCIe Peripheral Component Interconnect Express interface protocols (USB High-speed and Full speed). Supporting additional internal power gating, reference clock control, and PLL control allows for reduced power use. The PHY is also particularly advantageous for a range of situations under varied considerations of power consumption because of the adaptability of the previously described low power mode option.
