PHYBoost enables programmable four-level USB signal drive strengths in downstream port transceivers. PHYBoost attempts to restore USB signal integrity that has been compromised by system level variables such as poor PCB layout, long cables, etc. The graphics below show an example of Hi-Speed USB eye diagrams before (PHYBoost at 0%) and after (PHYBoost at 12%) signal integrity restoration in a compromised system environment.
