Pericom Semiconductor Corp. has expanded its switching and power management products geared for advanced connectivity requirements of the latest CPU chipsets for mobility and related applications. According to the company, the power management products control platform voltage distribution, while the switching products are aimed at Thunderbolt, USB and HDMI/DP (DisplayPort) switching applications.

The two power management load switches sequence the voltage turn-on in mobile platforms to help conserve battery drain. The 10.3Gb/s Thunderbolt high speed switch is designed to multiplex and de-multiplex the main Thunderbolt data paths into individual signals from the graphics processor and route them to a platform connector or end point. The switch includes two 10.3Gb/s full duplex data paths, can accept DP and HDMI signals, and offers extremely low power and signal attenuation to preserve high speed signal integrity and system performance, detailed the company.

The two HDMI/DP high speed switches can accept a very wide signal range, which enables the platform's video stream to operate, even if the external signal is less than optimum. Additionally, the USB signal switch adds a unique feature that protects the CPU chipset from accidental over-voltage damage via USB connector reversal or mishandling, Pericom added.

The PI3PD22920 and PI3PD22919 are available for Rs.19.89 ($0.37) each, while the PI3TB212, PI3WVR12612, PI3WVR12412 and PI3USB102E are available for Rs.80.11 ($1.49), Rs.86.02 ($1.60), Rs.80.65 ($1.50) and Rs.43.01 ($0.80), respectively.
