San Jose, Calif.Fairchild Semiconductor is offering designers video filter products that support the move to higher video definition, mobile video and new output requirements, while optimizing system power consumption.
The FMS6364A four-channel video filter supports three 1080i HD channels and one SD channel, making it well-suited for cost-effective video platforms that are eliminating the two SD channels traditionally reserved for S-video. The FMS6364A joins the existing FMS6144A four-channel SD video filter in support of this emerging "sans-S-video" requirement.
For higher-end systems requiring a full complement of six-channel video, Fairchild's FMS6363A, a three- channel 1080i HD video filter, and Fairchild's FMS6143A, a three-channel SD video filter IC, can be used in various combinations. This provides mixed 1080i HD with SD or all SD, bringing more flexibility to the overall design and offers customers a competitive advantage in the market place.
To embrace energy-conservation concerns, video platform makers are moving to three volt power supplies. Fairchild supports this three volt operation with the FMS6143A, FMS6363A, and FMS6364A products, which complement Fairchild's other 3 volt-capable video filters.
The FMS6364A is housed in a 14-pin TSSOP package and the FMS6363A and FMS6143A each use an 8-pin SOIC package.
Pricing: In 1ku quantities, the FMS6143A is $0.36, FMS6363A, $0.45, and FMS6364A, $0.64.
Availability: Samples available now; delivery is six weeks.
Datasheets: FMS6143A, FMS6363A and FMS6364A.
