3G/HD/SD Digital Video Cable Equalizer (QFN)

The M08036 is a high-speed, low-power, adaptive co-axial cable equalizer designed to increase the maximum low-jitter transmission distance of serial digital video signals across commonly used bandwidth-limiting 75O coaxial cable. The M08036 is designed for data rates at 2.97 Gb/s, 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 device 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). This device automatically optimizes the transfer function based on the bit rate and cable length to minimize the inter-symbol interference (ISI) jitter caused by the cable and to remove the DC offset components introduced with the pathological video pattern and AC coupling in systems. The low-noise, high-gain equalizer allows for low jitter 2.97 Gb/s transmissions up to 100m (Belden 1694A), 1.485 Gb/s transmissions up to a length of 200m (Belden 1694A) and 120m (Belden 8281). At 270 Mb/s, cable lengths up to 400m (Belden 1694A) and 300m (Belden 8281) are supported.
