AD8150:  1.5 Gb/s, 33x17 Digital Crosspoint Switch

Product Details

AD8150 is a member of the Xstream line of products and is a breakthrough in digital switching, offering a large switch array (33 x 17) on very little power, typically less than 1.5 W. Additionally, it operates at data rates in excess of 1.5 Gbps per port, making it suitable for HDTV applications. Further, the pricing of the AD8150 makes it affordable enough to be used for SD applications as well. The AD8150 is also useful for OC-24 optical network switching.

The AD8150's flexible supply voltages allow the user to operate with either PECL or ECL data levels and will even operate down to 3.3 V for further power reduction. The control interface is CMOS/TTL compatible (3 V to 5 V).

Its fully differential signal path reduces jitter and crosstalk while allowing the use of smaller single-ended voltage swings.

The AD8150 is offered in a 184-lead LQFP package that operates over the industrial temperature range of 0°C to +85°C.
