VCom calibrator reduces manufacturing costs in TFT-LCDs
Replacing one of the last remaining mechanical stages in a TFT-LCD assembly, Intersil’s ISL45041 is a 7-bit, non-volatile programmable Vcom calibrator with I2C interface for setting backplane common voltage in thin film transistor liquid crystal displays (TFT-LCDs). The device is designed to reduce the flicker of an LCD panel by adjusting the Vcom voltage during production, effectively replacing the mechanical potentiometers normally needed to...
Intersil takes its Analog knowledge to China
Intersil will present its key analogue experts during a five-city tour in China to share the latest analogue technology at five free, live seminars to be held in Shenzhen, Xiamen, Chengdu, Guangzhou and Wuhan. ‘The Analogue Authority’ is the theme of this year’s analogue seminar hosted by Intersil. Presented by Intersil’s analogue experts, the one-day intensive analogue seminars will take place from June 26 through July 5, 2006 in China...
Intersil launches family of 3.3V ESD-protected (3kV), low-power RF gain blocks for satellite TV and ISM bands
Intersil Corporation (NASDAQ: ISIL), a world leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance analogue solutions, today introduced six new RF amplifiers in its ISL550xx family for use in satellite receivers and ISM (industry, scientific and medical) band applications. The amplifiers have integrated ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection up to 3kV human body model, and are available in multiple impedance options to eliminate the need for...
Triple-channel video analogue front end IC
A triple-channel, video analogue front end IC from Intersil provides what is said to be the industry¹s highest speeds along with continuously controlled offset voltages, so designers do not have to calibrate offset error out of their system on an AFE-by-AFE basis. The device¹s digital phase locked loop includes headswitching support, enabling high-performance images even under the worst-case scenario of digitising inputs from a high-definiti...
Triple-channel multiplexer for video switching has really high bandwidth
A triple-channel multiplexer for video switching from Intersil has been designed with what is said to be the industry¹s highest bandwidth and a slew rate that enables exceptional bandwidth even at the high levels typically associated with video signals.
Low distortion audio/data switches for portable applications
Intersil’s ISL54400, ISL54401 and ISL54402 are said to be the first commercially available audio/data switches in the industry to provide both low-distortion audio and USB switching capabilities. Combining data and audio switches eliminates either the USB or headphone connector in devices such as portable MP3 players and camera phones, providing cost savings. Also, automatic USB cable detection and the integration of external components assoc...
Intersil names analogue expert to lead Consumer Power group
Intersil has named Andrew Rhind as VP and general manager of the company’s Consumer Power products group, which markets high-performance power solutions for the consumer electronics market.
Tiny video driver removes GSM interference
A highly integrated, single supply video driver from Intersil has an 8 MHz low-pass filter that removes GSM noise from the video band, and also serves as an anti-aliasing filter. The ISL59111 also provides the added benefit of seeing input signals below ground.
Voltage regulator powers next-generation graphics processing units
Intersil's latest single-phase buck voltage regulator is designed to power next-generation graphics processing units (GPUs) or graphics cores used on Intel Santa Rosa platforms. The device reduces power consumption and enhances the performance of the GPU by dynamically changing output voltage and operation modes corresponding to the advanced GPU control protocol.
