Pericom Semiconductor Corp. has expanded its HDMI switch portfolio with four high-bandwidth differential signal switch solutions for multisource or multisink video applications, including TV, monitor, STB, switch box and game consoles.

The company's HDMI Rev 1.3 switches are fully compliant with the newly released (June 2006) standard. With 16bit deep color support (3.3Gbps), these switches can be used to connect various high-performance HD source products to a single HD video display. Housed in Pb-free and green packaging, these solutions also provide high bandwidth of up to 5.4Gbps, low insertion loss, high ESD tolerance and suitable pin-out.

These HDMI products, PI3HDMI412FT-A, PI3HDMI1212, PI3HDMI413-A and PI3HDMI414 have been designed with Pericom's patent-pending technology. This technology is used to achieve the specific impedance required for HDMI/DVI signals to minimize reflections and insertion loss, while still maintaining differential impedance requirements per the revision 1.3 specifications. When designing a sink-system, differential impedance must only be maintained from the sink HDMI input connector to the Pericom switch. Along with signal integrity, differential impedance, Pericom switch solutions also handle ESD protection on each HDMI connector up to 8kV contact protection.

The new PI3HDMI412FT-A, PI3HDMI413-A, PI3HDMI414, and PI3HDMI1212 are in full production today, with prices ranging from $1.40 to $3 in 10,000 unit quantities.
