Now available: MACOM's MACD-23528A

A second generation 12G-SDI Cable Driver

This second generation cable driver exceeds all the physical layer specifications noted in the SMPTE ST 2081-1 and ST 2082-1 standards and further improves performance by increasing the output signal’s inner eye opening, lowering output jitter and extending cable reach. Input equalization, dual differential outputs, 800mVpp and 400mVpp single ended output swings are some of the basic features of the MACD-23528A. In addition, both the first and second generation cable drivers are footprint compatible with MACOM’s 3G-SDI cable drivers, providing customers a seamless upgrade path from 3G to 12G.
