Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (MSPD) Releases New Cable Equalizer

|Includes: Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (MSPD)

Mindspeed Technologies recently announced that it has introduced to market a new adaptive equalizer with the longest reach and lowest output jitter for serial digital interface (NYSEMKT:SDI) applications. The product joins Mindspeed's product line, along with equalizers, reclockers, cable drivers, and crosspoint switches, and will be exhibited at the ICB2012 exhibition in Amsterdam on September 6 - 11.

Mindspeed is focused on providing network infrastructure semiconductor products and systems to the communications industry, with low-power system-on-chip (SoC) products that power video, voice, and data applications in fiber-optic networks.

The new M21544 product utilizes an integrated jitter cleaner, which Mindspeed claims delivers the lowest output jitter in the industry, less than 0.20 unit intervals (UI) after compensating for 200m of cable at 2.97Gbps. This reduces power consumption as well as complexity and cost, while doing away with the need for stand-alone reclockers. If the product is used in an environment where this option is not required, the jitter cleaner can be powered down.

Hasnain Bajwa, senior VP and GM of high-performance analog at Mindspeed, said, "This equalizer offers the performance, flexibility and power consumption equipment vendors demand for their next generation broadcast video system designs. Our new equalizer's capability to extend reach and provide extra system jitter margin will enable broadcasters to maximize utilization of their existing coax based infrastructure."
