'Smallest' serializer ships for mini-cameras

Maxim Integrated Products Inc. has introduced what it says is the industry's smallest serializer. The MAX9235 is a 10bit, 400MBps, 16-40MHz LVDS serializer in a 3mm x 3mm TQFN package, with an operating temperature range of -40C to 105C operating temperature range. Its small size88 percent smaller than previous 28-SSOP solutionsand wide operating temperature range makes it ideal for ultra-compact cameras used in production line monitoring, security and automotive applications.

The MAX9235 serializes 10bits of LVTTL/LVCMOS data into a single LVDS serial data stream. The MAX9206 then deserializes that single LVDS serial input into 10 single-ended LVTTL/LVCMOS outputs. The clock is recovered from the data stream, eliminating the clock-to-data and data-to-data skew that exists in a parallel bus. The MAX9235 can lock to a parallel clock in a wide 16MHz to 40MHz range. Its LVDS input and output signals meet the requirements of the ANSI TIA/EIA-644 LVDS standard, as well as IEC 61000-4-2 Level 4 ESD specifications (15kV Air-Gap Discharge, 8kV Contact Discharge).

The MAX9235 operates from a 3.3V 10 percent core supply.
