The M23636 is a 36x36 asynchronous fully non-blocking crosspoint switch operating at data rates up to 6.5 Gbps. The device includes advanced signal conditioning capabilities that enable the transmission of 6.5 Gbps NRZ data over PCB channels that exceed one meter in length. Signal conditioning circuits counteract frequency dependent impairments in the channel that degrade the signal quality. Specific device capabilities include individual, per-lane programmable input equalization and output de-emphasis. Configuration of the device is done through a set of register writes using one of the integrated 2-wire serial (I2C-compatible), 4-wire serial, or parallel digital interfaces.
