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

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

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX96709 is a compact serializer in a 4mm × 4mm TQFN package especially suited for automotive camera applications.

The embedded control channel operates at 9.6kbps to 1Mbps in I2C mode, allowing programming of serializer, deserializer, 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 MAX96709 is available in a 24-pin 0.5mm lead pitch, and operates over the -40°C to +115°C temperature range.
