Fairchild Semiconductor is offering designers of High Definition LCD-TVs, Blue Ray DVD players and HD set-top boxes the industry's first 6-Channel integrated video filter with 1080p HD capability.
The new 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 very robust ESD protection of 9 kV, protecting applications from adverse electrostatic discharge events and eliminating the need for discrete protection devices. Part of the industry's largest portfolio of video filters, the FMS6646 is the second member of Fairchild's video filter family to support 1080p HD.
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 3 V to 5 V, increasing design flexibility.
The FMS6646, housed in a 20-pin TSSOP, is pin compatible with Fairchild's popular FMS6346 6-Channel SD/1080i HD video filter.
Samples of the FMS6646 are available now. Delivery in six weeks. Price is $0.72 @ 1K units.
