Mindspeed Introduces Ultra-SDI Solutions for 4K UHDTV

6Gbps Equalizer and Cable Driver to Be Demonstrated at NAB 2013

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NAS: 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.

Technical Details

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 package.

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.
