Fairchild Semiconductor announces four LVDS serializers and deserializers. The serializers (FIN1215, FIN1217) convert parallel LVTTL to serial LVDS, and the deserializers (FIN1216, FIN1218) convert serial LVDS back to parallel LVTTL. Typically used as a matching SerDes pair, these devices provide 21:3 bit compression. Fairchild SerDes devices offer high bandwidth (> 1.75 Gbps for the FIN1217/18) with the benefits of LVDS including reduced EMI, low power consumption and superior noise immunity. With an industrial temperature range of 㫀°C to 80°C, the SerDes devices operate in extreme elements.
