San Jose, Calif.Fairchild Semiconductor has started to offer designers of High Definition LCD-TVs, Blue Ray DVD players and HD set-top boxes a 6-channel integrated video filter with 1080p HD capability.
The FMS6646 simultaneously supports three channels of 1080p HD with filtering at 75 MHz and three channels of SD at 8 MHz. This 6-channel video filter also offers robust ESD protection of 9kV, protecting applications from adverse electrostatic discharge events and eliminating the need for discrete protection devices.
Through integration, the FMS6646 reduces board space and complexity by eliminating numerous discrete filtering components as well as ESD protection diodes. The FMS6646 allows the inputs and outputs to be AC- or DC-coupled, reducing up to twelve components and saving as much as 10 percent board space, compared to a discrete implementation. This product has a wide operating range from 3V to 5V, increasing design flexibility.
The FMS6646 is housed in a 20-pin TSSOP.
Pricing: $0.72 each in 1K unit quantities.
