According to TI, the device is the industry’s first 12G ultra-high-definition (UHD) serial digital interface (SDI) reclocker with integrated signal conditioning. The reclocker doubles the transmission rate of competing 6G devices. Samples of the LMH1256 are available now in a 48-pin, 7-mm by 7-mm QFN package. Volume production is expected in 1Q 2104. Pre-production pricing is currently set at $35 in 1,000-unit quantities.
