San Jose, Calif. Pericom Semiconductor Corp. released a HDMI switch to transmit digital television audiovisual signals from DVD players, set-top boxes, and other audio-visual sources to television sets, projectors, and other video displays.
Pericom's PI3HDMI412 (4-differential channel, 2:1 mux/demux) DVI/high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) signal switch was designed using high-speed differential broadband switching technology that provides DVI/HDMI TMDS signal processing. With its maximum DVI/HDMI data rate of 1.65 Gbits/s, PI3HDMI412 provides the resolution (1920 x 1080) required by next generation HDTV and PC graphics applications.
“Today's advanced and developing consumer video networks are requiring two or more DVI/HDMI video sources to be connected to the display units. This requires muxing/demuxing capability at either the receiver end, or at the source end,” explained Shaf Rahman, Pericom's director of marketing.
Available now, suggested pricing for the PI3HDMI412 starts at $1.50 in 10,000-unit quantities. Click here for the PI3HDMI412 data sheet.
