Mindspeed Introduces Ultra-SDI Solutions for 4K UHDTV
6Gbps Equalizer and Cable Driver to Be Demonstrated at NAB 2013
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 it
will be demonstrating its new 6G-serial digital interface (SDI) video
solutions for 4K ultra high-definition (UHD) broadcast video transport
applications at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show 2013.
Mindspeed®’s new Ultra-SDI™ products include the M22554, 6G-SDI adaptive video
cable equalizer and the M22468, 6G-SDI video cable driver that support
6G/3G/HD/SD applications at 143 Mbps to 5.94 Gbps data rates. These new
devices enhance next-generation system designs by providing higher density,
lower power and lower material cost for transporting high quality UHD images
compared to multi-lane solutions.
"We are thrilled to deliver solutions that enable the broadcast industry to
migrate to higher resolutions,” said Hasnain Bajwa, senior vice president and
general manager, high-performance analog, at Mindspeed. “The Ultra-SDI family
joins Mindspeed’s portfolio of production-ready high-speed crosspoints, which
support 6G-SDI and beyond.”
The M21167, also on display at NAB 2013, is a 6.5Gbps non-blocking 160x160
crosspoint switch that integrates input equalization and output de-emphasis
with industry leading power consumption.
The M22554 equalizer is a high-speed, lower-power, adaptive co-axial cable
equalizer designed to increase the maximum distance of SDI video signals and
DVB-ASI across commonly used bandwidth-limiting 75 ohm coaxial cable. The
M22554 is designed to support data rates from 143 Mbps to 5.94 Gbps. The low
noise, high-gain equalizer allows for low jitter 5.94 Gbps transmissions with
dual differential outputs featuring programmable swing as well as de-emphasis.
The equalizer operates using a single 2.5 V supply voltage, provides advanced
diagnostics capabilities including cable length indication, loss of signal
detection and offers power management capabilities. The M22554 is housed in a
5x5 mm² 32-pin quad-flat no leads (QFN) package. The equalizer will also be
available in industry standard 16-pin and 24-pin versions in a 4x4 mm² QFN
The M22468 cable driver is a high-speed, low-power, low-jitter cable driver
that is designed to drive serial digital video data through 75 ohm coaxial
cable typically used in SMPTE and DVB-ASI video applications. It has dual
differential outputs with individual mute control and slew rate control. The
cable driver is optimized for performance from 143 Mbps up to 5.94 Gbps and is
packaged in a 3x3 mm² QFN.
Mindspeed will be demonstrating the Ultra-SDI solutions 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.
