3.3-V video filters cut cost, power in portables

Sunnyvale, Calif.—Maxim Integrated Products has introduced the MAX9583—MAX9589, MAX9517, and MAX9524 family of standard-definition (SD) video filters intended for use in set-top boxes, portable consumer applications, and car navigation systems.

Customers using traditional +5V designs can switch to the +3.3V video filters to save power and lower costs. According to Maxim, the 9mm² microMAX package (MAX9584) is more than 50% smaller than the competitive 20mm² package. In applications where the input signal is not between ground and approximately +1V, the MAX9524/MAX9586/MAX9587/MAX9588/MAX9589 eliminate the need for external clamping circuits, saving space and cost.

The devices are available in single-, dual-, triple-, and quad-channel configurations. They filter CVBS, Y/C, RGB, and Y-Pb-Pr video signals.

The MAX9583-MAX9589, MAX9517, and MAX9524 operate from a +2.7V to +3.6V single supply and are specified over the -40°C to +125°C automotive temperature range.

Pricing: Start at $0.36 for the MAX9586, $0.49 for the MAX9583/MAX9587, $0.59 for the MAX9584/MAX9588, $0.69 for the MAX9585/MAX9589, and $0.55 for the MAX9517/MAX9524 (1000-up, FOB USA).
