Pericom Delivers Broad Support for Latest Embedded Chipsets and Platforms

Pericom Semiconductor Corporation announced multiple new products supporting next generation embedded chipsets and platforms, including industrial, automotive, SBC (single board computer), telemetry, POS (point of sale), and other related applications. Pericom will display these products at Embedded World, Hall 4A, booth 529 February 24-26, 2015. The company is introducing new PCI Express (PCIe) timing, switching, and signal integrity products essential for embedded applications. Embedded platforms use a number of different CPU vendors who employ PCIe as the main I/O protocol. Pericom offers multiple PCIe products covering packet switch, protocol bridge, signal switch, signal integrity (ReDriver), and timing functions in support of PCIe speeds up to 8Gb (PCIe 3.0). In addition to PCIe, embedded platforms often require bridging to other protocols, such as I2C or SPI to UART, 8-BIT to UART, PCIe to UART, PCIe to USB2, PCIe to PCI, and PCI-X to PCIe. Pericom offers a family of products for each of these protocol bridges, which provide embedded platform designers with flexible protocol bridging solutions. Pericom also offers a complementary family of GPIO port expanders, and I2C splitters, level shifters and buffer/ReDrivers.
