Semtech GS1578A

Multi-rate HD-SDI Cable Driver

Add to Watch List

The GS1578A is a second generation high-speed bipolar integrated circuit designed to drive one or two 75 Ohm co-axial cables.

The GS1578A may drive data rates up to 1.485Gb/s and provides two selectable slew rates in order to achieve compliance to SMPTE 259M, SMPTE 344M and SMPTE 292M.

The GS1578A accepts a LVPECL level differential input that may be AC coupled. External biasing resistors at the inputs are not required.

Power consumption is typically 168mW using a 3.3V power supply. The GS1578A is Pb-free, and the encapsulation compound does not contain halogenated flame retardant (RoHS compliant).


  • SMPTE 292M, SMPTE 344M and SMPTE 259M compliant
  • Dual coaxial cable driving outputs with selectable slew rate
  • 50 Ohm differential PECL input
  • Pb-free and RoHS compliant
  • Seamless interface to other HD-LINX™ II family products
  • Single 3.3V power supply operation
  • Operating temperature range: 0°C to 70°C


  • SMPTE 292M, SMPTE 344M and SMPTE 259M Coaxial Cable Serial Digital Interfaces
