Camarillo, California - September 10, 2013
Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today announced its partnership with OmniTek, an industry leading manufacturer of broadcast test and measurement equipment. OmniTek, utilizing Semtech’s 6G UHD-SDI Equalizers, is the first broadcast test and measurement supplier to bring to market products featuring a 6G UHD-SDI interface.
Semtech’s Gennum Product Group will be showcasing its latest 6G UHD-SDI solutions at the International Broadcast Convention (IBC) show in Amsterdam, in Hall 10 booth #F30, Sept. 13-17, 2013. OmniTek’s 6G UHD-SDI card can also be seen at IBC, both at the Semtech booth and at the OmniTek booth #6.A18.
Semtech’s GS6042 6G UHD-SDI adaptive cable equalizer platform features the industry’s longest cable reach at 6G UHD-SDI, 3G, HD and SD data-rates. In addition, the GS6080 and GS6081 are the industry’s first 6G UHD-SDI cable driver platforms and, in conjunction with the GS6042, provide the industry’s most robust 6G UHD-SDI connectivity solution.
OmniTek’s 6G SDI card offers two SDI input channels, two SDI output channels and a DisplayPort 1.2 input and output. The inclusion of the Semtech interface devices in the SDI channels allows the card to provide full coverage of all four standard SDI bit rates: 270Mb/s, 1.485Gb/s, 2.97Gb/s, and the new 5.94Gb/s rate (including the /1.001 variants). The new 6G SDI I/O channels mean that the OmniTek solution is compatible with both 4k x 2k @ 30p images using one 6G channel, or 4k x 2k @ 60p using dual-link 6G SDI. The DisplayPort 1.2 channels also support 4k x 2k @ 60p for connections to the latest flat panel displays and projectors.
