Pericom Tackles LVDS Video Signal Routing With Two New High-Bandwidth Switches

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pericom Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: PSEM), a worldwide preferred supplier of high-speed integrated circuits and frequency control products, today announced release of an industry unique pair of LVDS Signal Routing Switches that feature high-bandwidth, low signal degradation, high ESD tolerance, and are fully compatible with the LVDS physical layer standard ANSI/TIA/EIA-644.

PI2LVD412 and PI2LVD512 are Differential 2:1 Mux/DeMux LVDS Signal Switches, and can address 18-bit displays (4-differential channels), as well as 24-bit displays (5-differential channels) respectively. LVDS provides a high-bandwidth, robust, economical digital interface for high-resolution flat panel displays, and is used in the majority of today's SVGA and XGA based notebook and sub-notebook computers.

Pericom's PI2LVD412 and 512 can route all required signals from two LVDS sources to a single LVDS flat panel display. Using this solution, a notebook manufacturer can allow consumers to easily upgrade the graphics power of their notebook instead of buying a new notebook. These unique devices can also allow a notebook to run video such as a DVD without having to boot-up the operating system.

"The major market segment that we see today for Pericom's LVDS signal switches is in notebook applications where we are already designed-in at some major customers, and the top two graphics chipset suppliers. The switches are being used to enable a 'one touch' feature that helps to save power and bypasses booting the OS, allowing users to, for instance, watch DVD movies. The switches are also designed to allow a 'flexible graphics' feature which enables users to easily upgrade the graphics power of their notebook without buying a new notebook," said Shaf Rahman, Director of Switch and Interface Marketing.

    Key Features:

    -- 4-differential channel, and 5-differential channel 2:1 Mux/DeMux
    -- Low signal attenuation of LVDS signal
    -- High ESD, 8kV HBM protection
    -- Great off-isolation and Crosstalk
    -- Low bit-to-bit skew (<10ps)
    -- High -3dB Bandwidth (>2.5Gbps)
    -- Flexible routing with a single bit control
    -- Pb-free and Green Packaging

    Availability and Pricing:

These devices are lead-free & Green and in full production today, with prices ranging from $1.35 to $1.75 in bulk quantities and can be purchased through our international sales partners Samples, datasheets, application note, IBIS models, and additional information can be found by visiting the company website.
