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).
