Fairchild Semiconductor announced that its FSHDMI04 high-definition multi-media interface (HDMI) switch has been selected by Xiamen Overseas Chinese Electronic Co. Ltd (XOCECO) for its new 42-inch LCD TV.

According to the press release, the Shanghai-based XOCECO chose the FSHDMI04 for its protection features, high-bandwidth and low power consumption. Another key selection factor was Fairchild's HDMI pre-testing support that resulted in the XOCECO TV easily attaining HDMI certification.

"Fairchild's FSHDMI04, with intra-pair skew of 55pS typical (under 1.65Gbps), high 8kV ESD performance and low quiescent current consumption of only 1?A max, was integral in helping our LCD TV pass the stringent HDMI tests that led to our certification," said Mr. Li, XOCECO's R&D manager. "In addition to providing us with advanced switch technology, Fairchild provided a pre-compliance testing lab in Shanghai that prepared us to pass the rigorous HDMI test at the Authorized Testing Center on our very first attempt."

When used in media systems with dual interfaces, the FSHDMI04 HDMI switch allows the application to connect to two other video sources such as DVDs, game consoles and STBs, the company said. By offering HDMI functionality in a single device, designers can use the FSHDMI04 to easily add a second HDMI input to the circuitry of their existing application without resorting to costly upgrades.

"Our FSHDMI04 switch was specifically designed to offer the ESD protection and excellent signal quality necessary for meeting the growing demand for HDMI-enabled products," said Patty Miske, switch marketing manager for Fairchild's analog products group. "We are delighted that our switch played a role in allowing XOCECO to meet the specification for HDMI, which, according to In-Stat, is experiencing 'record growth' with HDMI-enabled device shipments predicted to grow to 78 percent per year through 2010."
