Texas Instruments Introduces Wide Bandwidth Video Switches Optimize RGB and Composite Video Switching Applications

May 18, 2004

DALLAS (May 18, 2004) - Texas Instruments (TI) (NYSE: TXN) announced today the addition of two new Specialty Switches to its TS family of signal switches, the TS5V330 and the TS3V330. Leveraging its extensive expertise and knowledge in digital switch design and advanced process technology, TI is providing high-performance solutions to switching between multiple video sources. Both of the system-solution switches are Quad Single-Pole Double-Throw (SPDT) Video Switches, with the TS5V330 supporting an operating range from 4.5V to 5.5V and the TS3V330 operational from 3.0V to 3.6V. (See: focus.ti.com/docs/prod/folders/print/ts5v330.html and focus.ti.com/docs/prod/folders/print/ts3v330.html )

Suited for composite and RGB video applications, the TS5V330 and the TS3V330 offer low differential gain and phase (TS5V: Dg = 0.64%, Dp = 0.1 degree Typ./ TS3V: Dg = 0.82%, DP = 0.1 degree Typ). A wide bandwidth of 300 MHz Min coupled with low ON-State Resistance (TS5V: Ron = 3 ohms Typ./ TS3V: Ron = 5 ohms Typ.) and low crosstalk (TS5V: Xtalk = -63dB Typ./ TS3V: Xtalk = -80dB Typ.) make the devices appropriate for high frequency video applications, such as multiplexing/demultiplexing video signals on VGA cards. Both devices are also fully specified for partial-power-down applications using Ioff.

Pricing and Availability

Both the TS5V330 and the TS3V330 are currently available to sample. The TS5V330 and the TS3V330 are offered in the space saving 16-pin QFN (RGY) package along with the SSOP (DBQ), and TSSOP (PW) packaging. Budgetary pricing for both the TS5V330 is set at $1.12 in quantities of 1,000 and TS3V330 is set at $1.36 in quantities of 1,000.
