NXP Semiconductors has rolled out its next-generation, high-performance switch supporting Thunderbolt technology developed by Intel. The CBTL05024 features 10Gb/s performance and excellent signal integrity, noted the company. In addition, the switch significantly exceeds the low-power requirement for bus-powered Thunderbolt devices, added NXP.

The Thunderbolt interface consists of two 10.3Gb/s full-duplex data paths, and enables fast data transfers between PCs and peripheral and display devices, stated the company. It concurrently supports data (PCI Express) and display (DisplayPort) connections over a single cable.

NXP's high-speed switches are currently used in Thunderbolt connectors and are recommended for Intel reference designs, offering high performance, outstanding signal integrity, and a very low bill of materials. Featuring an integrated 10Gb/s Thunderbolt signal with no external PIN diodes, NXP's next-generation CBTL05024 also delivers advanced characteristics that enhance signal integrity and power efficiency, and is available in a very small HVQFN package, flaunted NXP.

Volume production of the CBTL05024 will start in November 2012. Budgetary pricing for the CBTL05024 is $1 for quantities between 5,000 and 25,000 pieces.
