The 89HP0602Q Repeater SATA Evaluation Board is designed to enable quick in-system testing of IDT’s 2-channel, 6Gbps Repeater IC product for SATA applications.
This board provides a 1-lane connection from SATA host through the Repeater to an HDD, SSD or other SATA device. This Evaluation Board is powered from a standard PC supply 3.3V SATA power connector. It is connected via two SATA cables to a host controller and storage device.
The 89HP0602Q Repeater uses pin-strap configuration, and this Evaluation Board implements a three-position DIP switch for simple setting of receiver equalization and transmitter swing and emphasis. Each of the 2-channels is independently configured via the switches.
