Mindspeed to Demonstrate High Performance Broadcast Video Cable Equalizer
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Mindspeed Technologies (News - Alert), Inc. (NASDAQ:MSPD), a leading supplier of
semiconductor solutions for broadcast infrastructure, today announced it
will be demonstrating the world's longest reach, low output jitter
multi-rate adaptive equalizer at the 2012
NAB Show in Las Vegas, NV.
The M21544 equalizer features breakthrough signal-conditioning
technology from Mindspeed that boosts system performance, and provides
greater design margin and flexibility by enabling longer distances with
ultra-low output jitter. The new equalizer capability complements
Mindspeed's comprehensive portfolio of crosspoint switches, serial
digital interface (SDI) reclockers and SDI cable drivers.
"We're very excited to unveil our groundbreaking adaptive equalization
technology," said Hasnain Bajwa, senior vice president and general
manager of the high-performance analog (HPA) business unit at Mindspeed.
"Tailored for 3G-SDI routing and switching equipment, our new equalizer
is capable of delivering professional grade video content with ultra low
jitter across extended cable lengths."
Mindspeed®'s signal-coditioning technology is a key feature of the
company's crosspoint switches and SDI products, and enables the M21544
equalizer to compensate for signal losses accumulated across extended
cable lengths when operating at 2.97 gigabits per second (Gbps). The
ability to provide critical compensation, buffering and
signal-conditioning functionality is becoming increasingly important for
next-generation video switching systems that must meet rigorous
transmission performance requirements across the entire signal path.
The M21544 provides adaptive, low noise, high gain equalization for 75
ohm coaxial cables at SDI data rates from 143 Mbps to 2.97 Gbps. The
device incorporates integrated dual differential outputs that each
feature programmable swing and de-emphasis, enabling signals to be
transmitted across 40 inches of FR4 trace. The device operates using a
single 2.5V supply voltage and features a number of advanced diagnostics
and power management capabilities, which can be used to optimize
performance in demanding applications.
Mindspeed will be demonstrating the M21544 at the 2012 NAB Show in booth
#N1112 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las
Vegas, NV, April 16-19, 2012.
It is anticipated that the M21544 equalizer will start sampling in the
third calendar quarter of 2012.
