Video Decoder Offers 4x Oversampling At Very Low Power

Said to be the industry’s lowest-power 10-bit, 4x oversampling video decoder, the MAX9526 is built around a high-performance 54-MHz, 10-bit analog-to-digital converter that delivers outstanding image quality when converting analog video signals to a digital format. The selectable 8-/10-bit video output provides image quality at the same precision (8-bit) used to author Blu-ray Disc and other forms of high-definition content. The MAX9526 consumes 30% less power and up to 50% less space than competing 4x oversampling devices. Power consumption is only 200 mW during normal operation and 100 µW in shutdown mode. The decoder is the only device in its class able run on 1.8 V on all supplies. In addition, a 1.7- to 3.45-V supply range on its digital I/O eliminates the need for external level shifters when interfacing with the video processor. The MAX9526 is fully specified over the ?40°C to 125°C automotive temperature range. It comes both 28-pin QSOP and 32-pin TQFN packages. Prices start at $2.00 in quantities of 1000. Samples and evaluation kits are available now for qualified customers. MAXIM INTEGRATED PRODUCTS, Sunnyvale, CA. (800) 998-8800.
