TI introduces industry's first SDI reclocker with integrated eye monitor for broadcast video systems

Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today introduced the industry's first serial digital interface (SDI) reclocker with an integrated eye monitor for examining the shape and health of incoming signal waveforms. The on-chip eye monitor provides real-time monitoring and diagnostics at the reclocker's input, allowing engineers to easily optimize their broadcast video system and speed time-to-market. The LMH0366 3-Gbps HD/SD reclocker consumes 50-percent less power than the competition, while offering best-in-class jitter performance and signal integrity for digital video routers, distribution amplifiers and video test equipment.

Key features and benefits of the LMH0366
  •     Integrated eye monitor: On-chip oscilloscope probe enables designers to examine transmitted signals at any point in the system for faster time-to-market. End users of the equipment save time and repair costs through the eye monitor's remote diagnostics and system debug capabilities.
  •     Lowest power consumption: 100-mW typical power consumption enables system designers to pack in more channels and features into smaller frames.
  •     Longer FR-4 reach: 50-percent longer reach than the competition enables greater flexibility when routing signals across backplanes and long board traces. The LMH0366 can equalize up to 60 inches of FR-4 trace length compared to 40 inches with the nearest competitor's device.
  •     No reference crystal required: Unlike competing devices that require an external reference crystal to lock to the correct data rates, the LMH0366 automatically detects the incoming data rate without the need for additional external crystals. This simplifies system design and reduces the designer's bill of materials (BOM) cost.
The LMH0366 joins the LMH0376 reclocker, which offers the same features but adds an integrated 4:1 input multiplexer. Both devices retime serial digital video data conforming to the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) 424M, SMPTE 292M and SMPTE 259M-C standards for transmitting high-resolution uncompressed video signals.

Engineers can develop a high-resolution video system solution by combining the LMH0366 or LMH0376 with the LMH0394 or LMH0395 3-Gbps adaptive cable equalizers, LMH0302 or LMH0307 3-Gbps cable drivers, SN65LVCP408 8x8 4.25-Gbps crosspoint switch, LMZ14203 3-A SIMPLE SWITCHER® power module, LP5900 150-mA linear regulator, and the TMS320DM8168 DaVinci™ video processor.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs. The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs. Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these p

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications. The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications. “We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner E


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference. The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection. The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.
