IC ‘drives’ signal conditioning at SMPTE data rates

National Semiconductor is sampling an HDTV serial digital cable driver and adaptive cable equalizer that it claims deliver the industry’s lowest power and highest electro-static discharge (ESD) protection to the video production equipment market. The CLC002 SD/HD (standard definition/high definition) TV digital cable driver and CLC034 SD/HD TV adaptive cable equalizer deliver the signal conditioning necessary for standard- and high-definition serial data transmission at Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) data rates.
