Gennum Corp. says it's offering the industry's first reference design and development board to deliver 3Gbps video transmission using existing dual-link equipment. The new reference design enables engineers to develop, test and prototype 3Gbps serial data interface (SDI) applications including video cameras, camcorders, DVRs/VTRs and 3Gbps test signal generation.

The 3Gbps reference design and development board converts a SMPTE 372M dual link 1080p 50/60 SDI signal to an industry-standard SMPTE 424M-compliant 3Gbps signal and vice versa. The reference design includes Gennum's equalizer, reclocker, cable driver, timing generator, clock cleaner, dual optical receiver and transmitter. Customers have the choice of buying the entire board, enabling test and evaluation of their 3Gbps products, or using the design as a reference in developing their products.

The reference design and development board is expected to be available in Q4 2007.
