Low Quiescent Current Switches for High-Speed Interfaces

PHOENIX, Ariz. – March 27, 2012 – ON Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: ONNN), a premier supplier of high performance silicon solutions for energy efficient electronics has introduced two new multiple-channel differential switching ICs in single pole, double throw (SPDT) switch configurations for high frequency signals such as PCI Express 3.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 I/O signals. Target applications include notebook computers, desktop computers, servers and network storage equipment.

The NCN3612B is a 6-channel differential SPDT switch that supports 8 gigabits per second (Gbps) data transfer due to its high bandwidth. It has an on-state capacitance (CON) of 2.1 pF (typical) and an on-state resistance (RDSON) of 8 ohms (Ω) (typical). This is complemented by the NCN3411, which is a 4-channel differential switch also capable of supporting 8 Gbps operation. It has a CON of 2 pF (typical) and a RDSON of 7.5 Ω (typical). These attributes make the two new devices highly suited to routing PCI Express 3.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 I/O signals.

“Because of their intrinsically low CON and RDSON figures, the NCN3612B and NCN3411 offer both faster data edge rates and lower insertion losses,” said Thibault Kassir, director for Interface and Power Products at ON Semiconductor. “As a result, these devices deliver the signal integrity levels needed to support the latest high-speed interface standards now being specified for system designs.”

The NCN3612B has a power supply voltage range of 3 volts (V) to 3.6 V and draws a supply current of just 250 microamps (µA) (typical), while the NCN3411 has a power supply voltage range of 1.5 V to 2.0 V and draws a supply current of 200 µA. These new devices have an operational ambient temperature range of −40 °C to +85 °C.

Packaging and Pricing

The NCN3612B is offered in a Pb-free, 56-pin WQFN (5 mm x 11 mm x 0.75 mm) package and is priced at $1.30 per unit in 2,000 unit quantities. The NCN3411 is offered in a Pb-free, 42-pin WQFN (3.5 mm x 9 mm x 0.75 mm) package and is priced at $1.15 per unit in 2,000 unit quantities.
