Models in the TK154xx family of video line-driver ICs come with a fixed gain of 6 dB and a built-in 75-Ω driver. SAG, Y-C mixing, analog switching, superimpose, tristate outputs, standby-mode operation, and multiple channel combinations are available for design flexibility. These drivers also only require external capacitors for operation, greatly reducing the external component count. Powered from a single 5-V supply, they operate between −25°C and 75°C. Their manufacturer says that they are suitable for monitors, LCD projectors, VCRs, video cameras, digital cameras, CCD cameras, video-editing equipment, and multimedia PCs. Available in a variety of miniature packages, including the small SOT-23L-8, sample prices start at $1.25 each for surface-mount components.
