SATA bidirectional redriver for eSATA cable

Posted: 29 Jan 2009     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:serial ATA  MAX4951  SATA bidirectional redriver 

With enhanced serial ATA (eSATA), the performance of a computer system with an external drive is virtually the same as that with an internal drive, and many times faster than USB 2.0. eSATA has separate receive/transmit paths at up to 3.0Gbps, whereas USB 2.0 is just a single 480Mbps link. With an eSATA port, a computer may easily have 1 terabyte (1TB) or more of external data that is as easy to access as an internal drive, but through up to 2m of cable. In order to accommodate the longer length cable, eSATA requires more drive than SATA. Maxim says that it introduced MAX4951 SATA bidirectional redriver to provide full eSATA drive requirements.
