Fairchild Semiconductor Announces Industry's First High-Bandwidth Three-Input Video Switch for High-Definition Video Signals

3-port Video Switch Replaces Two Discrete Devices, Increases Image Quality, System Efficiency and Power Performance in HD LCD Monitors

SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—June 22, 2005— Fairchild Semiconductor's (NYSE: FCS) FSAV433 is the industry's first high-bandwidth 3-port 3:1 video switch. The FSAV433 optimizes high-performance operation for LCD displays that require switching of three computer RGB or high-definition YPbPR analog video signals. The FSAV433's high bandwidth and low differential gain and phase provide minimal signal distortion, high video image integrity and "transparent" switching operation. The ultra-low power FSAV433 is complemented by excellent Off Isolation and crosstalk characteristics eliminating active channel-to-channel noise and annoying ghosting effects in the display. Moreover, the switch's low On Resistance (RON) results in minimal signal insertion loss, further increasing signal quality.

"Fairchild's FSAV433 devices are specifically designed to provide seamless switching and minimal signal routing complexity for emerging high-definition LCD systems," says Jerry Johnston, Fairchild product manager for analog switches. "The FSAV433 simplifies designs, reduces cost and enhances image quality. By replacing two traditional devices with a single three-port switch, the FSAV433 provides a more cost-effective solution for processing up to three HD video signals from DVDs, Set-Top Boxes, PCs and other remote devices."

Key features of the FSAV433 3:1 video switch include:

-- High bandwidth: 550 MHz, -3 dB;

-- Low differential gain: 0.2%, typical;

-- Low differential phase: 0.1 degree, typical;

-- Ultra-low power consumption: less than 1 uA;

-- Excellent Off Isolation: less than 75 dB;

-- Superior crosstalk characteristics: -85 dB;

-- Low On Resistance: 6.5 Ohms, typical.

Designed with full application flexibility in mind, the FSAV433 comes in a choice of 20-pin TSSOP (Thin Shrink Small Outline Package) or ultra-compact 20-terminal DQFN configurations. For space-limited designs, DQFN (Depopulated Quad very thin Flat pack No leads) is 75% smaller than TSSOP devices, runs cooler and generates lower noise and crosstalk between I/O terminals due to DQFN's lower capacitance and inductance.

The lead (Pb)-free FSAV433 meets or exceeds the requirements of the joint IPC/JEDEC standard J-STD-020B and is compliant with European Union requirements now in effect.
    Price: $1.50 each (1000 pcs) for either package configuration:
           FSAV433MTC (20-TSSOP); FSAV433BQX (20-DQFN)

    Availability: Now

    Delivery: 10 weeks ARO
