open-in-new Find other Camera SerDes


The TSER953 serializer is part of TI’s V3Link device family designed to support high-speed raw data sensors including 2.3MP imagers at 60-fps and as well as 4MP, 30-fps cameras, satellite RADAR, LIDAR, and Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensors. The device delivers a 4.16-Gbps forward channel and an ultra-low latency, 50-Mbps bidirectional control channel and supports power over a single coax (PoC) or STP cable. The TSER953 features advanced data protection and diagnostic features to support high-speed data transmission for various applications, such as robotics and automation, medical imaging, and security or surveillance, while streamlining design in industrial and medical camera applications. Together with a companion deserializer, the TSER953 delivers precise multi-camera sensor clock and sensor synchronization.

The serializer comes in a small 5-mm × 5-mm VQFN package for space-constrained sensor applications.
