Highest Bandwidth 4:1 Multiplexer for High-Performance Analog Applications
Fairchild Semiconductor has introduced the FHP3194, a 1.2GHz 4:1 analog multiplexer. Boasting an 800MHz small-signal and 500MHz large-signal -3dB bandwidth (at G=2), the FHP3194 offers approximately 25 percent higher bandwidth than comparable devices. This performance makes it the only multiplexer on the market today with the bandwidth capable of exceeding the high-resolution requirements for high-definition (HD), 1080p and 1080i, and PC graphic ...
Intersil launches multiplexer that allows switching between four different input signals for video applications
Intersil introduced the ISL59446, a triple-channel 4:1 multiplexer that allows the user to switch between four different input signals such as RGB or YPbPr (the colour space used in video electronics). The device allows customers to replace multiple muxes, simplifying design and saving board space.
ADI introduces ADP1653 high-efficiency, high-brightness, dual, white LED driver
Analog Devices, Inc. is introducing a white LED driver for the camera-phone flash function that uses a new portable power management technique to maintain picture quality even when the battery is taxed by multiple phone functions operating simultaneously.
