Pericom Delivers Industry's Smallest USB 2.0 Signal Multiplexer

HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- Sep 27, 2016 -- Pericom Semiconductor Corporation, now part of Diodes Incorporated (NASDAQ: DIOD), a leading supplier of serial high-speed switching, signal integrity, connectivity and timing solutions, today announced at USB Developer Days, the industry's smallest USB 2.0 Signal Multiplexer available addressing the growing needs for diagnostic and other applications in ultra-mobile devices such as tablets, notebooks and smart phones. Pericom will showcase the new solution at USB Developer Days, booth 10 in Houston, TX on September 27 and 28, 2016.

PI3USB102J is the industry's smallest, single differential channel 2 to 1 Signal Multiplexer USB 2.0 switch with very low current consumption and a wide operating temperature range. The extended temperature operation is increasingly required for very thin portable devices that don't have fans. PI3USB102J is available in a 10 pad UQFN (Ultra-thin Quad Flat No-Lead ) package with 1.2 x1.4 x 0.35mm linear dimensions. Current consumption is 30nA typical. The operating temperature ranges from -20 to 100 degrees Celsius.

"We are pleased to further enhance our leadership position in high speed signal multiplexers with our latest USB Signal Multiplexer addition," said Kay Annamalai, senior director marketing, Pericom Semiconductor. "Our latest offering can be applied to very thin notebooks, tablets and smart phones and has new features such as over-voltage protection and the ability to tolerate a short to 5V VBUS at the micro USB or USB Type-C™ connector."

"USB Type-C is the ideal solution to deliver data, power, audio and video over a single connector," said Jeff Ravencraft, USB-IF President and COO. "Companies like Pericom are enabling the mobile device market to meet growing demand for thinner platforms."

Diodes Incorporated and Pericom's USB Type-C™ solution includes USB Type-C™ controllers, high speed signal switches, redrivers, power switches, DC/DC and AC/DC converters, and Transient Voltage Suppressors. Learn more about our complete USB Type-C™ solution offerings at
