12.5 Gbps, 1:8 Demultiplexer with Latched Comparator Input Enables High Frequency Communications and Computing Applications
Inphi Corporation announced the 1385DX demultiplexer with latched comparator input operating at bit rates from DC to 12.5 Gbps. Part of the High Speed Logic family of devices, the 1385DX, with its high sensitivity latched comparator input and auto-synchronizing demultiplexer, enables test and measurement, defense, and aerospace designers to develop high speed data acquisition front ends and to deserialize high speed signals. The 1385DX features a high-speed sampling clock and high-bandwidth latched comparator input that can be used to sample high-bandwidth analog signals and demultiplex them to a lower data rate for post-processing via a low speed FPGA or ASIC. Additionally, the high bandwidth input supports digital signals up to 12.5 Gbps, which are latched and deserialized to an eight bit parallel output bus. The 1:8 deserialization, coupled with an on-chip synchronization circuit and adjustable output levels, allow the use of multiple demultiplexers in parallel, with automatic alignment of the parallel output buses of the demultiplexers.
