NXP Releases Two High-Speed Multiplexers for Intel Thunderbolt Interface

EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS and TAIPEI, TAIWAN -- (Marketwire) -- Jun 05, 2012 -- NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) today announced the availability of two high-speed multiplexer (mux) switches supporting Thunderbolt™ I/O technology developed by Intel Corporation. Thunderbolt technology enables fast data transfers between PCs and peripheral and display devices by concurrently supporting data and display connections over a single cable. Two high-performance mux switches from NXP -- the CBTL05023 and CBTL06DP211 -- are used on Thunderbolt host and peripheral designs. Several OEMs and ODMs will be demonstrating Thunderbolt-based products at Computex Taipei this week.

"Smaller and lighter portable computing devices such as the Ultrabook™ need to have fewer external connectors, smaller connectors, and connectors that can transfer different signals seamlessly. Thunderbolt I/O technology supports these design goals, and we're pleased to be working with the broader ecosystem around Thunderbolt -- including major OEMs and ODMs -- in enabling the high performance required to make high-speed data transfers a reality," said Grahame Cooney, general manager of high-speed interfaces and clocks, watches and graphics drivers, NXP Semiconductors.

Intel® Thunderbolt controllers transmit and receive information for both the PCI Express (PCIe) and DisplayPort protocols, switching between the two protocols to support communications over a single cable. The NXP switches enable cost-effective bills of material for Thunderbolt connectors, offering high performance and outstanding signal integrity characteristics. NXP's high-performance mux switches are housed in compact HVQFN-24 (CBTL05023) and TFBGA-48 (CBTL06DP211) packages.

The CBTL05023 and CBTL06DP211 are currently in high-volume production, and samples are available to qualified customers on request. Further information on NXP's high-speed multiplexers is available at: http://www.nxp.com/products/interface_and_connectivity/displayport/high_speed_multiplexer/
