Introduction

EPCIE8XRDCA02 is External PCI Express x8 Active (Redriver with Linear Equalization) Cable Adapter Card, it requires no additional software or drivers to operate.

Designed to overcome the limited PCIe connectivity of most desktop computers, the EPCIE8XRDCA02 can be quickly and easily set up for external expansion.

EPCIE8XRDCA02 provides programmable Linear Equalization, Output Swing and Flat Gain by pin strapping easily. The programmable settings can be applied easily via jumper. EPCIE8XRDCA02 offers fully Linear Transfer function to fully comply with all PCIe 3 Link Training signals.

The integrated equalization circuitry provides flexibility with signal integrity of the PCI Express signal before the Redriver, whereas the integrated Flat Gain circuitry provides flexibility with signal integrity of the PCI Express signal after the Redriver.
