Dallas, Tex.Designed specifically for HDMI and DisplayPort connectors, Texas Instruments' TPD8S009 provides system-level ESD protection for eight high-speed differential lines.
The TPD8S009's flow-through, single-inline pin mapping optimizes the board layout and lowers susceptibility to unwanted electromagnetic interference. Additionally, this architecture allows designers to easily add or remove the device without redesigning the system. The ESD solution is designed to increase overall system reliability in devices such as notebook or desktop computers, televisions or DVD players.
According to TI, the TPD8S009 has the industry's lowest differential capacitance of less than 0.05 pF, which enables minimal differential signal distortion. The 0.8 pF line capacitance for each data line allows the device to achieve the higher data rates suitable for high-speed video applications by supporting HDMI 1.3 and DisplayPort data rates up to 2.7 Gbit/s. It is compact for space-conscious equipment and comes in a small 6.5 mm x 2.5 mm SON-15 package.
The TPD8S009 is optimized to work with TI's family of video switch buffers for DisplayPort and HDMI, such as the SN75DP129 DisplayPort to HDMI translator and the TMDS351 HDMI switch.
