SCART solution reduces power in set-top boxes, A/V receivers

Sunnyvale, Calif.—Maxim Integrated Products is calling its MAX9597 the industry's first fully integrated, +3.3V SCART product for set-top boxes and A/V receivers that have one SCART connector.

Maxim's patented DirectDrive technology enables the device to operate audio and video signals from +3.3V, eliminating the need for a +5V supply and minimizing the use of a +12V supply. This low-voltage operation, combined with the MAX9597's 53mW quiescent current consumption, makes it much easier to meet stringent energy-efficiency requirements for set-top boxes.

Additional functions include 5-microwatts power consumption in shutdown mode and a video reconstruction filter with 10MHz passband and 43dB attenuation at 27MHz.

Pricing: Starts at $0.90 (1000-up, FOB USA).
Availability: Samples and evaluation kits are available now.
