14-Bit GMSL Serializer with High Immunity/Bandwidth Mode and Coax/STP Cable Drive

1.6Gbps Serializer in 4mm × 4mm TQFN with Crosspoint and CRC Protection of Video and Control Data for ADAS Applications


The MAX96707 is a compact serializer in a 4mm × 4mm TQFN package especially suited for automotive camera applications. In high-bandwidth mode, the parallel-clock maximum is 116MHz for 12-bit linear or combined HDR data types.

The embedded control channel operates at 9.6kbps to 1Mbps in I2C mode, allowing programming of serializer, deserializer (SerDes), and camera registers independent of video timing.

For driving longer cables, the IC has programmable pre/deemphasis. Programmable spread spectrum is available on the serial output. The serial output meets ISO 10605 and IEC 61000-4-2 ESD standards. The supply range is 1.7V to 1.9V.

The MAX96707 is available in a 24-pin TQFN package with 0.5mm lead pitch, and operates over the -40°C to +115°C temperature range.
