Semtech Enables the Future of Video Transport with Industry’s Lowest Power UHD-SDI Adaptive Cable Equalizer and Reclocker Platforms at NAB 2014

Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today announced the availability of its UHD-SDI GS6140 6G adaptive cable equalizer and GS6150 UHD-SDI 6G reclocker, adding to Semtech’s line-up of the industry’s best performing solutions for multi-rate connectivity up to 6G UHD-SDI.

Semtech Gennum Products will be showcasing these products, along with Semtech’s comprehensive, end-to-end portfolio of multi rate UHD-SDI video solutions at the National Association of Broadcasters show in Las Vegas, April 7-10, 2014, booth N2116.

The GS6140 is the industry’s lowest power adaptive cable equalizer and also delivers best-in-class cable reach at 6G UHD-SDI data rates without sacrificing best-in-class cable reach at 3G, HD and SD data-rates. The GS6140 is ideal for demanding channel-dense applications that require both long cable reach and extremely low power – at any data rate.

In addition, the GS6150 is the industry’s first multi-rate reclocker with 6G UHD-SDI support. For high-density applications requiring an exceptionally small device footprint, the GS6151 offers the performance benefits of the GS6150 in a smaller package.

“The emergence of UHDTV has directed the broadcast industry to rapidly develop solutions that leverage UHD-SDI connectivity. Semtech’s UHD-SDI product platforms have allowed us to respond quickly to the needs of our customers without compromising best-in-class performance,” said Gary Beauchamp, Executive Vice President & General Manager, Signal Integrity Product Group.
