Triple video amplifiers consume 26.4-mW in consumer applications

Loveland, Colo.—CADEKA Microcircuits has introduced the CLC3800 and CLC3801 low power, triple video amplifiers that are designed to meet the requirements of today's cost-sensitive, standard definition (SD) consumer and industrial video applications.

Carrying the COMLINEAR brand, the amplifiers consume only 26.4-mW and offer differential gain/phase (0.05%/0.02 degrees).

The COMLINEAR CLC3800 and CLC3801 feature integrated 8-MHz, 4th-order low pass filters designed to cleanly pass SD video signals while filtering out noise and other unwanted signals, resulting in a crisper, cleaner video signal.

These amplifiers also integrate high-performance, fixed-gain video drivers that use CADEKA's amplifier design expertise. The CLC3800 offers a fixed gain of 6dB. If additional gain is required, the CLC3801 video amplifier offers a fixed gain of 9dB. The two gain options make these amplifiers well suited for use with a variety of video DACs and encoders.

Each channel of the CLC3800 or CLC3801 can drive two AC- or DC-coupled video loads. This allows today's STB, PVR, LCDTV, portable DVD, or video surveillance systems to provide the end user with additional output configurations.

Pricing: Starts at 30 cents for quantities of 1,000.
Availability: Samples are available today in a Pb-free, RoHS compliant SOIC-8 packages. A space saving DFN package will be available later in 2008.
