DALLAS, Aug. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today announced the industry's first 12G ultra-high-definition (UHD) serial digital interface (SDI) reclocker with integrated signal conditioning. The four-channel LMH1256 doubles the transmission rate of competing 6G devices, allowing broadcast video equipment to capture, record and play back 4K video signals at 60 Hz over a single link of coaxial cable. The LMH1256 reclocker addresses next-generation systems, including digital video routers, switches, encoders/decoders, modular cards, multi-viewers and display monitors. For more information and to order samples, visit www.ti.com/lmh1256-pr.
TI will demonstrate the LMH1256 operating with an Altera Stratix® V GX development board at IBC 2013 in Amsterdam, September 13-17 at Hall 11, Booth #G41.
The emerging 4K UHD standard delivers four times the image resolution compared to current 1080p HD video equipment. By enabling a screen display resolution of 3840 by 2160 pixels, 4K UHD presents video in much greater detail, offering consumers a more immersive TV viewing experience.
Key features and benefits of the LMH1256:
Tools and support
An evaluation module (EVM) is available to help accelerate the development of 4K UHD-SDI video systems. The LMH1256EVM can be purchased for a suggested retail price of USD$699. An IBIS-AMI model is also available to verify board signal integrity requirements.
Engineers designing with the LMH1256 can ask questions and get answers from TI experts in the TI E2E™ Community High Speed Interface Forum.
Availability, packaging and pricing
Samples of the LMH1256 are available today in a 48-pin, 7-mm by 7-mm QFN package, with production volumes expected in 1Q 2104. Pre-production pricing is currently set at US$35 in 1,000-unit quantities.
