EVALUATION KIT AVAILABLE
MAX4951C
6Gbps SATA Bidirectional Redriver with Input Equalization,
Preemphasis, and Advanced Power Management
General Description
The MAX4951C dual-channel buffer with input equalization and preemphasis is ideal to redrive internal serialATA (SATA) 1i, 2i, and 3i signals as well as eSATA 1m
and 2m signals. The device features high electrostatic
discharge (ESD) Q8kV Human Body Model (HBM) protection. The device can be placed near a SATA connector on the motherboard to overcome board losses and
guarantee SATA compliance. The device is SATA specification version 3.0 (gold standard) compliant and can
also be pin-configured for SATA specification version 2.6
(gold standard) compliance.
The device features hardware SATA-drive cable detection that automatically places the device into a standby
mode that consumes less than 20FA (typ) standby current when no drive is connected. In addition, the device
features an independent channel dynamic power-down
mode where power consumption is reduced when no
input signal is present. The device maintains output
common-mode levels to meet internal SATA version 3.0
standards and prevent delays when coming out of lowpower mode.
The device preserves signal integrity at the receiv­er by
reestablishing full output levels and reducing the total
system jitter (TJ) by providing equalization. The device
features channel-independent digital preemphasis controls to drive SATA outputs over longer trace lengths to
meet internal SATA specifications. SATA out-of-band
(OOB) signaling is supported using high-speed out-ofband signal detection on the inputs, and squelch on
the corresponding outputs. Inputs and outputs are all
internally 50I terminated and must be AC-coupled to the
SATA controller IC and SATA device.
The device operates from a single +3.3V (typ) supply,
is available in a small, 4mm x 4mm TQFN package with
flow-through traces for ease of layout, and is specified
over the commercial 0NC to +70NC operating temperature
range. The MAX4951C is also pin compatible with the
MAX4951BE SATA 6.0Gbps redriver.

Detailed Description
The MAX4951C consists of two identical buffers that take
SATA input signals and return them to full SATA compliant
output levels. Each buffer includes an equalizer, a limiting
amplifier, and an output driver with preemphasis. The buffer outputs are protected from high-voltage electrostatic
discharge (ESD) to Q8kV Human Body Model (HBM).
Input/Output Terminations
Inputs and outputs are internally 50I terminated and
must be AC-coupled to the SATA controller IC and SATA
device for proper operation.
OOB Signal Detection
The device provides full OOB signal support through
high-speed, OOB-detection circuitry. SATA OOB differential input signals of VOOB_TH_LOW or less are detected
as off and are not passed to the output. This prevents the

system from responding to unwanted noise. SATA OOB
differential input signals of VOOB_TH_HIGH or more are
detected as on and passed to the output. This allows
OOB signals to transmit through the device. The time
for the OOB detection circuit to detect an inactive SATA
OOB input and squelch the associated output, or detect
an active SATA OOB input and enable the output, is 3ns
(typ). The MODE pin can be used to program the OOB
detection range. When MODE = GND, the SATA version
3.0 range is used. When MODE = VCC, the SATA version
2.6 range is used.
Enable Input
The device features an active-high enable input (EN). EN
has an internal pulldown resistor of 390kI (typ). Drive
EN low or leave unconnected to place the device into
low-power standby mode. In standby, the buffers are disabled, reducing the supply current to 20FA (typ). Drive
EN high for normal operation.

dynamic power-down mode, making the device ideal for
internal SATA applications.
The device features an active-low, cable-detect input
(CAD) for use in external SATA applications. CAD has
an internal 390kI (typ) pullup resistor. Drive CAD high
or leave uncon­nected to place the device into low-power
standby mode. In this mode, the buffers are disabled,
reducing supply current to 20FA (typ). This signal is
normally driven low by inserting an internal SATA cable
into a properly wired socket (see the Typical Operating
Circuit). If the cable-detect feature is not desired, connect CAD to GND.
Output Preemphasis Selection Inputs
The device has two preemphasis control-logic inputs, PA
and PB. PA and PB have internal 390kI (typ) pulldown
resistors. PA and PB enable preemphasis to the outputs of their corresponding buffers (see the Functional
Diagram/Truth Table). Drive PA or PB low or leave
unconnected for standard SATA output levels. Drive PA
or PB high to provide preemphasis to the output. The
preemphasis output signal compensates for attenuation from longer trace lengths or to meet internal SATA
specifications.
Dynamic Power-Down Mode
The device features a dynamic power-down mode where
the device shuts down the major power consuming circuitry. The device detects if the input signal is not present
for a 4Fs (typ) duration. Normal operation resumes after
20ns (max) when a signal above the OOB threshold level
is detected at the input. This function is implemented
separately for both channels. The output common mode
remains virtually unchanged when entering or exiting
Applications Information
Figure 1 shows a typical application with the device used
to drive an internal SATA device. Set PB high and PA low
for applications with board losses < 3dB between the
MAX4951C and the connector.

Exposed-Pad Package
The exposed-pad, 20-pin TQFN package incorporates
features that provide a very low-thermal resistance path
for heat removal from the device. The exposed pad on
the device must be soldered to GND for proper ther­mal
and electrical performance. For more information on
exposed-pad packages, refer to Application Note 862:
HFAN-08.1: Thermal Considerations of QFN and Other
Exposed-Paddle Packages.
Layout
Use controlled-impedance transmission lines to interface
with the device’s high-speed inputs and outputs. Place
power-supply decoupling capacitors as close as possible to the VCC pin.
Power-Supply Sequencing
Caution: Do not exceed the absolute maximum rat­
ings because stresses beyond the listed ratings can
cause permanent damage to the device.

Proper power-supply sequencing is recommended for
all devices. Always apply VCC before applying signals,
especially if the signal is not current limited.
ESD Protection
As with all Maxim devices, ESD protection structures are
incorporated on all pins to protect against electrostatic
discharges encountered during handling and assembly.
The MAX4951C is protected against ESD events up to
Q8kV (HBM). The ESD struc­tures withstand Q8kV in all
states: normal operation and powered down. After an ESD
event, the device continues to function without latchup.
HBM
The device is rated for Q8kV ESD pro­tection using the
HBM (MIL-STD-883, Method 3015). Figure 2 shows the
HBM voltage, and Figure 3 shows the current waveform it
generates when discharged into a low-impedance state.
This model con­sists of a 100pF capacitor charged to the
ESD voltage of interest that is then discharged into the
device through a 1.5kI resistor.
