Title: Fully Integrated Ideal Switch Solution Meets PCIe 6.0 Requirements with HSIO Loopback

Date: April 12, 2023

Time: 8am PT / 11am ET

Sponsored by: RFMW and Menlo Micro

Presented by: Stewart Yang, Applications Engineer, Menlo Micro

Menlo Micro Dual DP3T relay has been designed to support differential signal switching in PCIe Gen 6 and high-speed SerDes applications. The MM5620 is based on Menlo’s Ideal Switch® technology and can operate up to 64 GT/s or 20 GHz for high-performance applications.

MM5620 has low insertion loss, fast switching speed, and can operate with greater than 3 billion switching cycles. The MM5620’s integrated charge pump and driver can be controlled through SPI or GPIO interfaces by a host processor. The design fully integrates loopback capacitors and offers significant reduction in size when compared with comparable high speed relay solutions.

Signal integrity is dependent on optimized PCB layout and fabrication. This session will discuss 2x Through fixture design, PCB design parameters and how to minimize discontinuity to the impedance. This session will also review differential signaling scheme, microwave de-embedding techniques, test setup and test conditions, and present measured differential s-parameter performance, and eye-diagram performances.
