Mindspeed Announces Crosspoint Switches For 4K Ultra High-Definition TV

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Sept. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:MSPD), a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for broadcast infrastructure, today announced a family of high-performance, asynchronous, fully non-blocking crosspoint switches supporting ultra high-definition television (UHDTV).

The M21024, M21036 and M21048 products support switch matrix densities of 24x24, 36x36 and 48x48 respectively. These devices enable broadcast equipment manufacturers to deliver next-generation higher-speed systems capable of supporting uncompressed UHDTV serial digital interface (SDI) covering data-rates up to 11.88 Gbps. The devices further extend the industry's broadest offering of crosspoint switches with matrix sizes spanning 2x2 to 288x288.

"Mindspeed®'s high-speed crosspoints maintain the reliability and quality of uncompressed video signals at ultra high-definition rates," said Hasnain Bajwa, senior vice president and general manager of the high-performance analog (HPA) business unit at Mindspeed. "We are excited to enable the design and deployment of next generation broadcast video technology."

Mindspeed's under two nanosecond latency crosspoint switches feature integrated signal-conditioning technology that enables them to send error-free video signals at high data rates by compensating for signal losses accumulated across long board traces. The devices also feature ultra-low jitter, and the transmit drivers feature output pre-emphasis and adjustable swing for link optimization.

Mindspeed will be showcasing its crosspoint portfolio and video transport solutions at IBC 2013 in booth 8.B38e, from September 13-17, 2013 at the RAI Center in Amsterdam. A live demonstration of the company's high data rate crosspoint switch technology in a 4K UHDTV editing workflow scenario featuring a workstation from ProMAX Systems is planned.

Additional information on Mindspeed's industry-leading crosspoint switch portfolio can be found at .


The devices are in production now and are packaged as follows: M21024 in 21x21 millimeter (mm), M21036 in 23x23 mm, M21048 in 27x27mm.
