Gennum HDcctv Solutions
26 million CCTV cameras shipped in 2008. It is estimated that around 41 million units will ship in 2014. The Alliance projects that the HDcctv product category will initially take a small share of the video surveillance market, growing to around 15% by 2014. Despite the growth of IP-based video surveillance, in the analog/HDcctv world, edge based hacking attacks on the network are impossible since the hacker needs to gain direct access to the DVR. IP networked cameras, on the other hand, are highly vulnerable to edge based hacking.

The HDcctv Alliance® estimates that

Overcome Signal Attenuation and Noise & Jitter Interference Challenges in USB 3.0 System Design
To offset the signal quality degradation, Pericom offers a broad array of USB 3.0 ReDrivers for maintaining a high level of SI (Signal Integrity) during Tx and Rx of USB 3.0 high-speed signals.
The highly anticipated USB 3.0 is now seeing wide spread adoption in PC, Notebook, Server and Portable Devices. USB 3.0 delivers an unprecedented bandwidth, 10 times that of USB 2.0. USB 3.0 supports full-duplex communication, or the ability to send and receive data simultaneously. It also improves QoS (Quality of Service) thanks to advance data error checking, while saving power with the USB 3.0 link power management. Most importantly, it is 100% backward compatible with USB 2.0 devices. However, with all these added benefits, the high-speed differential signal of USB 3.0 also introduces uncontrollable noise, or signal attenuation, causing USB 3.0 signal voltage swing to overshoot or undershoot the “optimal eye opening”. This distorts the quality of USB 3.0 signal eye during high-speed signal switching. USB 3.0 signal quality is gravely impacted when random or deterministic noise degrades the signal quality with crosstalk during transmitting and receiving of USB 3.0 packets between USB 3.0 hosts and peripheral devices. Faced with complex PCB layout challenges, USB 3.0 system designers see significant benefits from Pericom USB 3.0 ReDrivers in transmitting and receiving reliable USB 3.0 signals with strong output swing, effective jitter removal, flexible transmit emphasis and receiver equalization. System designers don’t always have full control as to how USB 3.0 end-point devices, like external HDDs, digital cameras, handhelds, or tablets, are connected between host and end point. When the signal travels thru extensive traces, multi-layer vias, connectors before exiting to the USB 3.0 ports or cables, the transmit eye of USB 3.0 host or device may show significant degradation from jitter, attenuation or insertion loss. As result, the USB 3.0 link may likely suffer greater BER and link recovery during USB 3.0 cable plug and un-plug processes. USB 3.0 system designers need to take greater measures to ensure strong SI during USB 3.0 Tx and Rx signal transmission. Pericom’s USB 3.0 ReDriver devices offer the exact Signal Conditioning Solutions to ensure that the USB 3.0 eye is fully optimized to maintain consistent level of SI when routing extensive long traces across connectors, vias and thru cables. With Pericom’s USB 3.0 ReDrivers, system designers are given greater flexibility to design and route High-speed USB 3.0 signals in a challenging environments while maintaining consistent level of signal quality.

Mobile SDRAMs for High Performance with Low Power
MEMORY
Only ISSI offers a complete portfolio of LPDDR memories, ideal for applications requiring low operating power and ultra low standby current. JEDEC standard 1.8V supply voltage interfaces with all popular MCUs.
Demand continues to grow for mobile consumer devices like GPS/navigation systems, smart phones, digital cameras, and gaming units. This creates the requirement for ever increasing processing capacity and with that the need for more dynamic memory (DRAM) for fast access and processing of the multimedia content. At the same time, mobile products are shrinking in size, with less space for batteries, necessitating the use of LPDDR products. These meet the data bandwidth need but have much lower operating and standby currents than traditional “PC” memory. The result is the increasing use of higher density LPDDR devices in various form-factors including BGA package, Package-on-Package (PoP) and Known Good Die (KGD). Many Industrial and Medical applications also have adopted LPDDR products to take advantage of the low voltage / low power features of LPDDRs. Virtually every new MicroController (MCU) uses advanced process technology, limiting I/O voltage to 1.8V. Rather than having to use DDR2 devices with much higher density than is needed and with a substantially higher power consumption, engineers are turning to LPDDR devices such as the popular 128Mb product from ISSI. The IS43LR32400F offers a sweet-spot in terms of density and performance, but with lower power and reduced system cost than equivalent DDR2 devices.

XL375 CC - 260 Watts without Fans
P OWER S U P P LI ES
Ultra Small, High Efficiency Power Supply with Convection Cooling Option Delivers 260 Watts Without Fans.
The new Convection Cooling Option for the XL375 family delivers 260 watts across all output voltages and eliminates the fans and fan controllers needed to cool conventional power supplies, saving cost and freeing up valuable component space. Doing away with fans and related components and circuitry is significant to designers tasked with increasing the reliability and decreasing the noise of products (fans may fail, and they generate most of the audible sound in contemporary designs). OEMs can design in both convection-cooled and fan-cooled power supplies that use the same very compact, low profile 3.3” x 5” x 1.5” packaging, connectors and layout, saving time and cost. The very low profile packaging is ideally suited to 1U product designs and makes the system designer’s job much easier. The Convection Cooling Option gives OEMs a distinct packaging and cost benefit while also reducing overall power consumption and cooling requirements for applications such as industrial automation, telecommunications, gaming systems, security and surveillance systems, and network servers. Our unique technology gives OEM engineers new flexibility in power system design that pays real competitive dividends in their final products. All models also include Active Current Sharing to allow up to four supplies to be operated in parallel for high output applications. The Active OR-ing mosfet board option is available for N+1 applications. Both 5V standby and 12V auxiliary outputs can be wired Or-able when the main output is disabled. Synchronous rectification delivers exceptionally high efficiency: up to 93% in some models.
