Fairchild Semiconductor Brings Designers Targeted Switch Solutions for Camera Modules

  • Ensures Signal Integrity and Enables Multiple Interfaces in 3G Smart Phones

SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 13, 2009Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS) offers designers of 3G smart phones, cell phones, set-top boxes, security cameras and notebooks a camera switch portfolio that solves compelling design challenges in these applications.

Fairchild’s application-specific solutions provide:

  • Strong Isolation – Higher frequency cell phones, such as smart phones, need to manage parasitics for optimal signal integrity. As cameras within these phones move to higher resolutions, parasitic components can easily deteriorate signals. Fairchild answered this challenge with the industry’s first image module switch, the FSA1211, to isolate parasitic components up to -45dB of OFF isolation.
  • Multi-Interface Handling Capability – To comply with multiple camera interface such as MDDI, MIPI, and YUV, Fairchild has a number of solutions such as the FSA642.
  • Design Flexibility – Place the image processor anywhere on the board with the added ability of isolating and serializing with Fairchild’s µSerDes™ solutions, the FIN212 (40MHz) and FIN210 (48MHz).
  • Reduced EMI – 3G phones are moving to higher frequencies, inherently generating unwanted EMI. Fairchild has a number of products that tackle this issue including the FSA1211, which reduces the radiated EMI of the signal path to also improve RF desense.
  • Lower Overall On Capacitance – A vexing challenge for designers is to reduce the overall on capacitance on data paths in portable designs; Fairchild has developed camera switch solutions that feature a low on capacitance (6pF typical) to accommodate a faster data rate and to lower the overall on capacitance.

Fairchild Semiconductor offers cutting-edge solutions for portable applications. Its analog, audio, video, camera switches and USB switches are instrumental in minimizing redundant circuitry, eliminating connectors, simplifying design and conserving space in designs. Offered in a variety of functions, configurations, packages and performance levels, Fairchild’s switches are pivotal in solving portable and consumer design challenges.
