Fairchild Semiconductor introduces the FIN212AC, the µSerDes device specifically designed for serializing high-speed signals in multi-megapixel-resolution CMOS and CCD image sensors commonly found in portable products such as cell phones with built-in cameras. Using Fairchild’s proprietary CTL I/O for serializing up to 12-bits at speeds up to 40 MHz, the FIN212AC can be configured as a serializer or deserializer and is implemented in pairs. Patented CTL technology operates well in noisy RF environments by eliminating additional shielding required by similar high-speed signals while offering the industry’s lowest EMI (𤩞dBM). The FIN212AC is especially beneficial when used in portable electronics with clamshell and slider form factors where minimizing the number of signals across a hinge reduces board space and improves reliability. Building upon Fairchild’s previous-generation µSerDes technology advancements, the FIN212AC offers selectable LVCMOS edge rates and pulse width to increase design flexibility while minimizing EMI.
