Product Line Overview
Video Broadcast Semtech’s comprehensive platform of SDI solutions, based on more than 20 years of video expertise, enable our customers to solve real world design challenges. Our devices are used in all equipment with SDI interfaces operating at SD, HD or 3G rates, for transporting digital video between equipment.
Security & Surveillance Semtech’s video surveillance products for HD video surveillance enable upgrade of analog CCTV installations to full digital HD, leveraging installed base of cabling. Our products enable the highest performance HDcctv standards-compliant designs.
Wireless RF and Sensing Semtech’s wireless RF products consist of RF transceiver, RF transmitter, and RF receiver components covering the Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) band radio frequency spectrum (from low kHz up to 1 GHz). These products feature the highest link budget in the industry, which enables more robust communication between wireless devices and also significantly reduces communications infrastructure costs. Our RF sensing solutions are RF transceiver chipsets that operate in the 3 Ghz to 5 GHz spectrum and are primarily intended for industrial position sensors.
Power Management Semtech’s Power Management products include feature high efficiency, high integration and small size for networking, telecom and high-end consumer markets where Energy Star and other energy copliance initiatives cotiinually raise the bar for greener, smarter and smaller products.
Circuit Protection (TVS) Semtech’s Transient Voltage Suppressors (TVS) safeguard circuits against damage or latch-up caused by ESD, lightning and other destructive voltage transients. Our protection devices feature low clamping voltage, low capacitance, and low leakage current.
Optical Transport (SerDes) Semtech’s ultra low jitter performance SerDes devices allow manufacturers to develop low cost, low power, and high performance optical transport equipment that can handle more bandwidth in a smaller space, enabling global carriers to meet exponentially growing video, voice and data traffic demands.
Timing and Synchronization Semtech significantly reduces network operating expenses by providing high-performance, standards-based network timing and synchronization products that allow service providers to migrate from circuit networks to Ethernet packet networks. Our timing solutions based on the IEEE 1588-2008 protocol are deployed worldwide throughout 3G & 4G networks, optical telecom networks, and IP backhaul solutions.
Touch Interface and Sensing Semtech’s Touch Interface products feature Smart Proximity sensors which can automatically reduce the RF output power in a mobile device when it is near a person or maintain a constant power output when it is near an object such as a desk or table. This unique feature allows manufacturers of high end, portable devices, such as tablets, mobile PCs, and Smartphones to develop products that comply with SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) standards for limiting RF energy exposure. Semtech also offers Capacitive and Resistive Touch controllers with multi-touch and proximity sensors that use standard Touch Panels.
Optical Networking, Storage & Computing Semtech offers one of the industry’s most comprehensive portfolios of IC for optical transceivers, backplane applications, and consumer high-speed interfaces. Our solutions range from 100Mb/s-100Gb/s supporting key industry standards such as Ethernet, Wireless backhaul, PON, Fibre Channel, SONET, Infiniband®, and PCI Express®.
