The M08018 is a high-speed, low-power, low-jitter cable driver that is designed to drive serial digital video data through commonly used bandwidth-limiting 75O coaxial cable applications. The device is optimized for data rates at 1.485 Gb/s and 270 Mb/s to support serial digital video transmission for standard definition (525i and 625i) and high definition (720p, 1080i, and 1080p) component video. The M08018 also supports 8-bit or 10-bit component digital video (RGB or YCbCr 4:4:4 sampled and YCbCr 4:2:2 or 4:2:0 sampled).
The M08018 has selectable slew rates for HD and SD applications. The typical output rise/fall time of the device is 100 ps at 1.485 Gb/s, and 600 ps at 270 Mb/s. It also supports a maximum single ended output swing of 1600 mVp–p with appropriate configurations which can be used in cascade applications.
The M08018 is available in a small outline RoHS-compliant SOIC package, which is backwards compatible with standard JEDEC SnPb processes. The device supports both 2.5V and 3.3V power supply operations with low power dissipation of 122mW at 2.5V and 144mW at 3.3V.
