LOVELAND, COLORADO, USA — June 16, 2008 — CADEKA Microcircuits, the industry’s fastest growing analog supplier, introduces the CLC3800 and CLC3801 low power, triple video amplifiers. These amplifiers are designed to meet the requirements of today’s cost-sensitive, standard definition (SD) consumer and industrial video applications. Carrying the COMLINEAR® brand, these amplifiers offer superb performance consuming only 26.4mW and offering industry leading differential gain/phase (0.05%/0.02°).
The COMLINEAR CLC3800 and CLC3801 feature integrated 8MHz, 4th-order low pass filters designed to cleanly pass SD video signals while filtering out noise and other unwanted signals, resulting in a crisper, cleaner video signal. These amplifiers also integrate high-performance, fixed-gain video drivers that utilize CADEKA’s vast amplifier design expertise. The CLC3800 offers a fixed gain of 6dB. If additional gain is required, the CLC3801 video amplifier offers a fixed gain of 9dB. The two gain options make these amplifiers well suited for use with a variety of video DACs and encoders.
Each channel of the CLC3800 or CLC3801 can drive two AC- or DC-coupled video loads. This allows today’s STB, PVR, LCDTV, portable DVD, or video surveillance systems to provide the end user with additional output configurations. Examples of these include:
“The introduction of the COMLINEAR CLC3800 and CLC3801 further strengthens our video amplifier portfolio,” explains Jay Dokter, CADEKA’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The extremely low power dissipation provides a huge thermal and power consumption benefit to consumer and portable video equipment manufacturers.”
Samples of the CLC3800 and CLC3801 are available today in a Pb-free, RoHS compliant SOIC-8 packages. Pricing starts at 30 cents for quantities of 1,000. A space saving DFN package will be available later in 2008.
