Newport Beach, Calif.Mindspeed Technologies Inc. recently extended its broadcast video product suite with a family of standard-definition (SD) physical media-interface devices.
Mindspeed’s SD broadcast-video media-interface products include the single-channel M21202 video cable driver, M21204 video cable equalizer and the M21205 video reclocker, each supporting data rates from 143-Mbits/s to 540-Mbits/s. The products are pin-compatible with competing legacy products.
The M21202 is a high-speed, low-power, low-jitter cable driver designed to drive SD-only serial digital video data through 75Ω coaxial cable typically used in Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) www.smpte.org and DVB-ASI video applications.

The M21204 is designed to increase the maximum transmission distance of serial digital interface (SDI) and digital video broadcast-asynchronous serial interface (DVB-ASI) video signals across commonly used bandwidth-limiting 75Ω co-axial cable. Additionally, it reduces power dissipation through the use of flexible power supply voltage operation.

The M21205 clock-and-data-recovery (CDR) reclocker is designed to remove both random and inter-symbol interference (ISI) jitter from the retimed data and provide a retimed data stream compliant to SMPTE and DVB-ASI serial video digital data input. The M21205 reduces power dissipation approximately 50% (at 3.3V supply) when compared to competing devices with further reductions possible through lower supply operation, according to the company.
