Why Matterhorn™?

Low Active Power.
Low BOM. Low Risk.

With no serial memory, low active power in USB4 and DP-ALT modes, and full USB4, USB 3.2 and DisplayPort compliance, there’s a lot less to worry about.

Why Matterhorn™?

Fully Optimizes USB4

Matterhorn allows every USB4 device to be the best it can be – optimizing data transfer and hitting the highest speeds the USB4 spec has to offer, whilst also future-proofing it for newer versions.
Why Matterhorn™?

Highly Manoeuvrable

Matterhorn’s 5×5 mm package is up to 50% smaller than competitors, giving you a lot more room to maneuver.

Why Matterhorn™?

Simple Integration

Autonomous environment scoping and dynamic correction means there’s no system tuning required, whilst also enabling longer PCB traces. So once installed, it just works.
