FAIRCHILD Semiconductor, represented by Arrow Electronics , has announced the FIN1049, a new LVDS dual driver/receiver pair that provides high-speed control or data transfer, in and outside of the box.
The dual D/R combines the functionality of two single D/R devices in one high-performance, 16-lead TSSOP package, saving PCB real estate and lowering IC part count by 50%.
Typical communications applications include chip-to-chip backplane and cable interconnections in transmission, metro/access, enterprise, and wireless equipment as well as interconnects for computing systems such as printers, scanners, and servers.
The FIN1049 device's 400+ Mbps bandwidth provides a low channel-to-channel and pulse skew of 350ps maximum.
A wide rail-to-rail common-mode range enhances device versatility by accommodating both LVPECL and LVCML logic signals.
The device's very low power consumption of only 90mW maximum optimises system power resources and protects against potential chip and system level failure through the FIN1049's tested 7kV ESD specification on all pins (human body model).
