A USB3.0 compatible transmitter and the linear equalizer of the corresponding receiver are presented in this paper. The architecture and circuit design techniques used to meet the strict requirements of the overall link design are explored. Output voltage amplitude and de-emphasis levels are programmable, whereas the output impedance is calibrated to 50Ω. A… CONTINUE READING
