Many of today’s analog and digital video multimedia transmission applications utilize a PC with video capture add-in card to serve as the primary user control center. As all video frame display and compression algorithms are performed by the PC, either on the main CPU or available graphics engine, these systems must support a wide range of input sources.
Diodes Incorporated offers a complete portfolio of products for video applications across all major video standards:
The high data rates of today’s video interfaces increase design complexity by leaving developers with less signal margin in which to design reliable high-performance systems. Diodes Incorporated's industry-leading signal conditioning technology is available in its ReDrivers / Repeaters
and HDMI active switches
to restore signal integrity by regenerating signals along the signal path. Better signal integrity and performance translate directly to more signal margin when designing systems and increased reliability over longer signal traces and cables. More margin also gives designers greater flexibility in their designs, allowing the use of less expensive components elsewhere in the system for lower overall cost. In addition, design complexity is reduced, resulting in faster time-to-market.
Diodes Incorporated also offers an extensive variety of switches for supporting multiple video sources and/or outputs with a single device. With the increase in users wanting to connect portable devices like cell phones and tablets to DTVs and computer displays, it is important that switches are compact, highly integrated, cost-competitive, and power efficient. Key features of Diodes Incorporated switches include (depending upon the interface), integrated support for multiple protocols, low jitter, electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection, and excellent power efficiency.
With its long history and technology proven over a wide range of applications, Diodes Incorporated continues to lead the industry by being among the first to support new video standards as they evolve. OEMs can rely upon Diodes Incorporated to provide cost-effective components supporting a wide variety of configurations, including 1-, 2-, 3-, and 4-port devices, depending upon the application.
