Fairchild Semiconductor offers designers video filter solutions that support the move to higher video definition, mobile video and new output requirements, while optimizing system power consumption.

The company is rolling out three new video filtersFMS6143A, FMS6363A, and FMS6364to support various combinations of 1080i high definition (HD) and standard definition (SD).

The FMS6364A four-channel video filter supports three 1080i HD channels and one SD channel, making it suitable for cost-effective video platforms that are eliminating the two SD channels traditionally reserved for S-video. The FMS6364A joins the existing FMS6144A four-channel SD video filter in support of this emerging "sans-S-video" requirement.

For higher-end systems requiring a full complement of six-channel video, Fairchild's FMS6363A, a three-channel 1080i HD video filter, and Fairchild's FMS6143A, a three-channel SD video filter IC, can be used in various combinations. This provides mixed 1080i HD with SD or all SD, bringing more flexibility to the overall design and offers customers a competitive advantage in the market place.

To embrace energy-conservation concerns, video platform makers are moving to 3V power supplies. Fairchild supports this 3V operation with the FMS6143A, FMS6363A, and FMS6364A products, which complement Fairchild's other 3V-capable video filters.

These new video filters continue Fairchild's strategy of building filter ICs for specific video market trends, and join the FMS6303 that supports the trend to even higher 1080p HD video and the tiny FMS6151 to enable video for mobile devices.

The FMS6364A is housed in a 14-pin TSSOP package and the FMS6363A and FMS6143A each use an 8-pin SOIC package. The FMS6143A, FMS6363A and FMS6364A are priced at $0.36, $0.45 and $0.64 each, respectively, in 1,000 pieces.
