10-bit, 4x oversampling video decoder pushes digital video into new markets

Sunnyvale, Calif.—Broadening its product portfolio for the digital video signal path, Maxim Integrated Products has introduced the MAX9526, calling it the industry's lowest power, 10-bit, 4x oversampling video decoder.

The MAX9526 consumes less than 200mW and is capable of operating from 1.8V on all supplies.

The MAX9526 single-channel video decoder converts analog video signals into the industry-standard ITU-R BT.656 format required for digital processing. It is built around a high-performance 54MHz, 10-bit ADC that delivers high image quality when converting analog video signals to a digital format. The selectable 8-/10-bit video output provides image quality at the same precision (8-bit) used to author Blu-ray Disc and other forms of high-definition content (ITU-R BT.656 4:2:2).

This high-performance video decoder is designed to push digital video into new markets. It is offered at a price point comparable to low-end decoders (9-bit, 2x oversampling), effectively eliminating the need to sacrifice video quality for cost.

Applications include security and surveillance, automotive, and consumer electronics.

The MAX9526 is fully specified over the -40°C to +125°C automotive temperature range, and is available in both 28-pin QSOP and 32-pin TQFN packages.

Pricing: Starts at $2.00 (1000-up, FOB USA).
Availability: Samples and evaluation kits are available now for qualified customers.
