Multi-format video cable drivers

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. introduced two HD/SD multi-format video cable drivers for video distribution amplifiers, production routers and switchers, analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters, and other professional broadcast equipment.

The cable drivers partner with the company's HOTLink-On-Demand video SERDES, equalizer and YLinkTM protection switch devices to offer a complete serial digital port solution to professional video equipment designers. Both cable drivers can be used as drop-in replacements for existing devices.

According to the press release, the CYV15G0101CD cable driver offers the market's largest output voltage swing between 500mV and 1,900mV, allowing customers greater flexibility to fit within the margins of Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers and DVB-ASI specifications. The CYV15G0102CD HD/SD cable driver is available with dual non-inverting outputs, which allow customers to easily utilize both available cable driver outputs for non-inverting DVB-ASI signals without adding external devices.

"By adding our new HD/SD multi-format video cable driver to our HOTLink-On-Demand family of video SERDES, video equalizers and YLink protection switch, Cypress can now offer professional video equipment designers a complete physical layer portfolio along with the excellent customer support that has been our hallmark," said Erin Kettwig, product manager for Cypress physical layer devices. "All of Cypress's video interface products simplify the design process for our customers, resulting in significant savings on overall BOM costs and design cycle time."

Both the CYV15G0101CD and CYV15G0102CD are offered in 8-pin SOIC and 16-pin QFN packages. Pricing in 1,000-unit quantities is $10 each for the CYV15G0101CD. Samples of the new devices will be available in June, with full production availability scheduled in October 2006.
