open-in-new Find other Serial digital interface (SDI) ICs


The CLC001 is a monolithic, high-speed cable driver designed for use in SMPTE 259M serial digital video and ITU-T G.703 serial digital data transmission applications. The CLC001 drives 75 transmission lines (Belden 8281 or equivalent) at data rates up to 622 Mbps. Controlled output rise and fall times (400 ps typical) minimize transition-induced jitter. The output voltage swing is adjustable from 800 mVp-p to 1.0 Vp-p using an external resistor.

The CLC001's output stage consumes less power than other designs. The differential inputs accept LVDS signal levels, LVPECL levels directly or PECL with attenuation networks.

All these make the CLC001 an excellent general purpose high speed driver for high-speed, long distance data transmission applications.

The CLC001 is powered from a single +3.3V supply and comes in a small 8-pin SOIC package.
