LOWELL, Mass. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for broadcast video infrastructure, today announced six new 12G-SDI products that are the industry's first complete chipset to support 12G-SDI applications. The six groundbreaking products will be on display at the MACOM booth #N2819 at the NAB Show, April 7-10 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

12G-SDI is the next data rate in the evolution of the SDI standard. It is required in order to support 4K video resolutions at 60 frames per second over a single coaxial cable, or optical fiber.

The M23544 / M23554 / M23564 family of 12G-SDI equalizers are the industry’s first 12G adaptive cable equalizers. They set the standard for 12G reach, while supporting legacy data rates of 6G, 3G, HD and SD-SDI, as well as the MADI audio standard. Containing an integrated reclocker they ensure that the output jitter from the device remains low across all cable lengths. This is critical as the amount of jitter that a 12G-SDI system can tolerate is one-quarter of that of a 3G-SDI system.

The M23328 / M23428 family of 12G-SDI cable drivers are the industry’s first 12G cable drivers. These new devices ensure that customers can meet new 12G and 6G requirements for rise / fall times and return loss. Like the cable equalizer family, they support all legacy SDI data rates and the MADI audio standard.

The M23145 12G reclocker will reset the jitter budget at 12G and also supports legacy SDI data rates and the MADI audio standard. The part features an integrated trace equalizer and jitter detector, all contained in a very small package.

These products expand on MACOM’s leadership position in 12G-SDI which also includes numerous crosspoint switches.

“Viewers are demanding 4K/UHDTV content to show on newer panels. By releasing the industry’s first complete 12G-SDI chipset to complement our line of 12Gbps crosspoints, we are giving our customers all of the key building blocks to construct 12G-SDI systems today which will support 4K on a single link,” said Russell Thomas, Product Marketing Director, High Performance Analog, at MACOM

MACOM’s 12G chipset is now sampling to development partners. For more information contact your sales representative.
