Cypress Completes Video Interface Solution With Introduction Of High-Performance HD/SD Multi-Format Video Cable Drivers.SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Cypress to Demonstrate High-Performance Cable Drivers, Equalizers, YLink(TM) Protection Switch, and HOTLink-On-Demand(TM) SERDES See serializer/deserializer. at NAB 2006
Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE NYSE
See: New York Stock Exchange :CY), a world leader in video physical layer devices (PHYs), today introduced two HD/SD multi-format video cable drivers for video distribution amplifiers, production routers and switchers, A/D A/D
See advance-decline line (A/D). and D/A converters, and other professional broadcast equipment. The cable drivers partner with Cypress's HOTLink-On-Demand(TM) video SERDES, equalizer, and YLink(TM) protection switch devices to offer a complete serial digital port solution to professional video equipment designers. Both cable drivers can be used as drop-in replacements for existing devices.
The new CYV15G0101CD Cypress cable driver offers the market's largest output voltage swing between 500 mV and 1900 mV, allowing customers greater flexibility to fit within the margins of SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers, White Plains, NY, www.smpte.org) A professional society for motion picture and TV engineers with more than 9,000 members worldwide. It prepares standards and documentation for TV production. (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers or SMPTE, (IPA pronunciation: [sɪmpti] and sometimes [sʌmpti] ) and DVB-ASI DVB-ASI Digital Video Broadcasting - Asynchronous Serial Interface specifications. The CYV15G0102CD HD/SD cable driver is available with dual non-inverting outputs, which allow customers to easily utilize both available cable driver outputs for non-inverting DVB-ASI signals without adding external devices.
"By adding our new HD/SD multi-format video cable driver to our HOTLink-On-Demand family of video SERDES, our video equalizers, and our YLink protection switch, Cypress can now offer professional video equipment designers a complete physical layer portfolio along with the excellent customer support that has been our hallmark," said Erin Kettwig, product manager for Cypress physical layer devices. "All of Cypress's video interface products simplify the design process for our customers, resulting in significant savings on overall BOM costs and design cycle time."
Cypress will demonstrate the entire video interface, including the HOTLink-On-Demand family of video SERDES, multi-format equalizers, cable drivers, and YLink port protection switches in booth C10148 at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) 2006 Conference to be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center The Las Vegas Convention Center is owned and operated by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and is located in Clark County, Nevada. It is one of the largest Convention centers in the world. At the end of 2004, the center had 3. , Las Vegas, Nevada from April 24 through April 27. Cypress's YLink is the industry's first video link protection switch, and provides cost-effective redundancy throughout video networks. Cypress's video equalizers deliver unmatched distance equalization and power consumption savings for professional video systems.
