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

Product Details

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.

Description

The MAX96707/MAX96709 coax evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX96707 and MAX96709 high-bandwidth gigabit multimedia serial link (GMSL) serializers with spread spectrum and full-duplex control channel, through the use of a standard FAKRA coax or STP cable. The EV kit also includes Windows Vista®- and Windows® 7-compatible software that provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) for exercising features of the device. The EV kit comes with either a MAX96707GTG+ or MAX96709GTG+ IC installed.

For complete GMSL evaluation using a standard FAKRA coax cable, order the MAX96707 or MAX96709 EV kit and a companion deserializer board (the MAX96706 EV kit is referenced in this document). For testing with STP cable, also order the MAXCOAX2STPHSD adapter kit and refer to its data sheet. Only one adapter kit is required per link (connecting the serializer and deserializer boards).

Features

  • Accepts 14-Bit Parallel Input Data and Outputs GMSL Serial Data through FAKRA Connectors
  • Power-over-Coax Capable
  • Windows Vista- and Windows 7-Compatible Software
  • USB-Controlled Interface (Cable Included)
  • USB Powered
  • Proven PCB Layout
  • Fully Assembled and Tested
