Maxim introduces the MAX9217 and MAX9218, which serialize 27 lines into a single DC-balanced twisted pair or differential line for improved EMI and low-cost routing. The LVDS inputs and outputs meet the requirements of the ANSI TIA/EIA 644 LVDS standard. The MAX9217 serializer and MAX9218 deserializer are suitable for 480 × 800 resolution LCD displays, automotive navigation and entertainment systems, digital copiers, laser printers, network switches/routers and basestations. The MAX9217 serializes 18 bits of LVTTL/LVCMOS RGB digital video data, nine bits of LVTTL/LVCMOS control data and clock into a single LVDS serial clock and data stream. The MAX9218 deserializes a single LVDS serial input into 27 single-ended LVTTL/LVCMOS outputs. Both feature DC-balanced outputs, which use AC coupling to allow isolation between serializer and deserializer. The DC-balanced feature reduces bit errors in the MAX9218 deserializer due to shift in the common mode caused by ground shift. The maximum aggregate payload data rate is 700 Mb/s.
