Texas Instruments Inc. has rolled out a new line of 10:1 and 1:10 serdes devices that transmits data over high-speed backplanes up to 660Mbps using 25 percent less power than competing devices.

Designed as drop-in replacements for existing market solutions, the devices are suitable for use in wireless basestations, data communication backplanes, and video and industrial systems.

The SN65LVDS1023 10:1 serializer-transmitter and SN65LVDS1224 1:10 deserializer-receiver has a data rate ranging from 300Mbps to 660Mbps. While the SN65LVDS1021 serializer and SN56LVDS1212 deserializer has a data rate of 100Mbps to 400Mbps.

The company claims that the at 660Mbps, the products consume <400mW of power to convert 10-bit words into single-bit data streams, transmit the data over cable or copper backplane media, then receive and reconvert the data into 10-bit words.

In addition, the devices have a 30 percent increase in the voltage swing, enabling them to support greater backplane transmission distances.

"TI's LVDS serdes products enable base station and other backplane customers to pack more channels into less space with best-ever cost effectiveness," said Atul Patel, high speed communications and controls product marketing manager at TI.

Manufactured using the CMOS process, the LVDS devices also feature a sync mode and lock indicator to facilitate design, verification, and troubleshooting.

The serdes products are available in 28-pin SSOP housings and are priced starting at $5.40 each in quantities of 1,000.
