Texas Instruments Inc.’s latest image sensor receiver IC serves as a dedicated LVDS bridge between image sensors and processors.
Compared to existing FPGA-based solutions, the SN65LVDS324 lowers the bill-of-materials (BOM) by 20 percent, reduces system power consumption by more than 10 percent and shrinks package size by 50 percent, according to TI. It provides full HD, 1080p60 image quality in a host of video capture applications, including surveillance IP cameras and video conferencing systems, as well as industrial, consumer and professional video recording equipment.
- Lowers BOM costs by up to 20 percent compared to existing FPGA-based solutions.
- In 1080p60 system implementations, the SN65LVDS324 typically consumes less than 150 mW
- Dedicated function provides a 50-percent smaller package than current FPGAs
- Supports a wide range of resolutions and frame rates, up to 1080p60-full-HD to maximize system performance.
Availability, packaging and pricing
The SN65LVDS324 is available in a 4.5-mm by 7-mm, 59-ball PBGA (ZQL) package. Suggested retail pricing in 1000-unit quantities is US$2.65.
