The AD9883ABST is the newest member in Analog Devices' portfolio of flat panel display interfaces

The new industrial grade AD9883A is the industry's first fully integrated analogue interface to operate over the industrial temperature range of -40 to +85C. The device enables superior image quality in rugged environments that require wider temperature ranges and robust design features. The AD9883ABST is ideally suited to automotive and aerospace applications where displays operate in rigorous, taxing environments and need to withstand extreme fluctuations in temperature.

The new device is optimised for XGA (extended graphics array) and SXGA (super extended graphics array) LCD displays, HDTV (high definition television), and advanced TV applications.

Flat panel displays are becoming increasingly attractive in industrial applications due to the significant space savings over traditional CRT (cathode ray tube) displays.

The AD9883ABST features three high-bandwidth, 8bit, 140Msample/s ADCs and an ultra-low-jitter PLL (less than 500ps at 140MHz), ensuring maximum robustness and image quality.

The AD9883ABST's innovative mixed-signal design allows it to operate at speeds as high as 140Msample/s, supporting all graphics modes up to SXGA and all HDTV video formats.

Its architecture is compatible with LCD, plasma, projection, and other types of digital display technologies.

Other functions the IC performs include the following: composite sync processing; mid-scale clamping; input signal detection; automatic power-down control; and programmable gain/offset control maximise ease-of-use and robustness in graphics and video applications.

The AD9883ABST flat panel interface is available now in 80-pin LQFP (low profile quad flat pack) packaging and is sold in both industrial and commercial temperature grade versions.

The part is priced at $8.50 per unit in 1000-piece quantities.
