 solution for small displays and cameras in portable electronics, introduces key enhancements to its uSerDes(TM) (micro-SerDes) technology. Using the same footprint and base architecture as its popular predecessor, the FIN24AC, the new FIN224AC offers enhanced ESD (1) (Electronic Software Distribution) Distributing new software and upgrades via the network rather than individual installations on each machine. See ESL.  protection and reduced EMI (ElectroMagnetic Interference) An electrical disturbance in a system due to natural phenomena, low-frequency waves from electromechanical devices or high-frequency waves (RFI) from chips and other electronic devices. Allowable limits are governed by the FCC. . As with any handheld electronic equipment, damage from electrostatic discharge is a primary concern. Fairchild addressed this challenge by increasing ESD protection from 8kV in the FIN24AC to 15kV in the FIN224AC. Another enhancement is the implementation of rolled edge rates of the LVTTL LVTTL Low Voltage Transistor Transistor Logic (AMCC)

 outputs to further reduce EMI. This is particularly advantageous in cell phones and other wireless applications where minimizing noise is crucial.

(TM) technology to reduce 24 or 12 parallel LVTTL signals typically required in ultra-portables to a single differential serial signal. This innovative approach eliminates the number of wires in an application, simplifying the design and saving space, while also removing problematic electromagnetic radiation electromagnetic radiation, energy radiated in the form of a wave as a result of the motion of electric charges. A moving charge gives rise to a magnetic field, and if the motion is changing (accelerated), then the magnetic field varies and in turn produces an  from wide, high-speed data paths. Fairchild's uSerDes devices are easily adaptable to a wide range of technologies since they offer similar benefits to any application with a small display or camera. Driven by the high data-rate demands of cameras and displays along with the mechanical requirements of clamshell and slider form factors, cell phone designers were the first to adopt uSerDes technology.

"Fairchild has worked closely with our customers to refine our uSerDes technology and produce a device that addresses all their concerns while simplifying converging technologies into even smaller, thinner applications," says Chris Ferland, Fairchild's uSerDes(TM) marketing manager. "Fairchild's FIN224AC fulfills an important need in portable applications."

Fairchild's uSerDes is a breakthrough technology embodying the company's focus on high-performance analog products. After successfully developing this advanced technology in cooperation with its customers, Fairchild continues to enhance uSerDes devices to meet the requirements of next-generation electronics. uSerDes devices simplify designs with high-resolution HVGA HVGA Half-size Video Graphics Array (640 by 240 pixels; 2.67:1 aspect ration)

 displays and multi-megapixel cameras. In many designs, this approach also lowers the total solution cost of these high-speed interfaces by reducing connector and flex cable requirements and by eliminating the need for EMI shielding and filters.
