Mindspeed Introduces Industry’s First Reclocker with Integrated Cable Driver
for the Broadcast Video Market
Low Power, Integrated 3G-SDI Reclocker Eases System Design
2013 NAB Show
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- April 8, 2013
Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), a leading supplier of
semiconductor solutions for broadcast video infrastructure, today announced
its M31285, new low-power, multi-rate, serial digital interface (SDI)
reclocker with integrated fully featured dual cable drivers in a compact 4x4
mm² package providing up to 50 percent power savings compared to competitive
solutions. The new reclocker simplifies system design by offering additional
margin through enhanced trace equalization and lower output jitter.
"We have leveraged our expertise in signal integrity and low-power design to
provide an integrated solution that delivers industry leading performance,
density, and power consumption," said Ryan Latchman, vice president of
strategic marketing and applications engineering, high-performance analog at
Mindspeed. "We are excited to roll out innovative solutions that enable the
next generation of broadcast of video systems.”
The M31285 features two integrated differential 75 ohm cable drivers that each
feature programmable swing and pre-emphasis. A standalone reclocker, the
M31245 with dual 50 ohm trace drivers with de-emphasis, is also available.
Both devices operate at SDI data rates ranging from 270 Mbps to 2.97 Gbps,
also support multichannel audio digital interface (MADI) at 125 Mbps, and
feature a jitter detector module which measures the jitter present at the
input of the reclocker after the signal is equalized.
The M31285 and M31245 both equalize up to 60 inches of trace, integrate
Automatic Rate Detect circuitry and internal reference clock, which eliminates
the need for an external crystal oscillator reducing complexity and component
costs. At 160 mW and 80 mW respectively, the M31285 and M31245 consume
significantly less power than existing devices. Both are packaged in a 4x4 mm²
32-pin QFN package providing significant area reduction compared to designs
realized with legacy solutions.
Mindspeed will be demonstrating the new reclocker at the 2013 NAB Show at its
booth, #N2834 in North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas,
Nevada, April 8-11, 2013.
