Nexperia launches Common Mode Filter with ESD protection for HDMI2.1 and DisplayPort

Highly efficient, combined-functionality device features wide differential passband

Nijmegen, September 29, 2020: Nexperia, the expert in essential semiconductors, has announced its new PCMFxHDMI2BA-C, a combined, highly efficient, common mode filter and ESD protection device with the widest 10 GHz differential bandwidth. It is suitable for the latest HDMI 2.1 standard up to 12G FRL, where eye-diagram tests were passed even with “worst cable model”.

Stefan Seider, Nexperia’s product manager for high-speed protection and filtering) commented: “HDMI 2.1 enables displays with higher resolution and better colours. However, this demands greater protection against interference, especially in compact wireless applications. The performance and miniature size of these 2 in 1 combination-devices makes them highly suitable for ‘tv stick’ type plug-in designs.”

This highly integrated PCMFxHDMI2BA-C device provides excellent common mode attenuation at HDMI fundamentals: -19.4 dB @ 3 GHz and -16 dB @ 6 GHz. ESD performance is also good with devices offering a clamping voltage of 7.4 V at 16 A transmission line pulse (5 V at 8 A). TDR impedance dip is < 10 Ohms for 200 ps rise time. The inductance of the coil-pair offers a further significant reduction of ESD peak voltages while having a low inductance for differential signals. Lastly, the parts can protect and filter one, two or three differential line pairs, while footprint-compatible ESD protection devices without filter are available as well.

In addition to HDMI 2.1, the combined common mode filter and ESD protection devices suit other high speed serial interfaces including HDMI 2.0, HDMI 1.4, MIPI, DisplayPort.

Nexperia’s PCMFxHDMI2BA features wafer-level chip scale packaging which eliminates package parasitics with their impact on performance, and is also very robust, capable of surviving 1500 drop tests. Devices are available now.

Demo: Inuitive NU4000 SoC with ARC EV Processor Running SLAM and CNN

Sponsored by Synopsys

Autonomous vehicles, robotics, augmented and virtual reality all require simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) to build a map of the surroundings. Combining SLAM with a neural network engine adds intelligence, allowing the system to identify objects and make decisions. In this demo, Synopsys ARC EV processor’s vision engine (VPU) accelerates KudanSLAM algorithms by up to 40% while running object detection on its CNN engine.

New package technology improves EMI and thermal performance with smaller solution size

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Power supply designers have a new tool in their effort to achieve balance between efficiency, size, and thermal performance with DC/DC power modules. The Enhanced HotRod™ QFN package technology from Texas Instruments enables engineers to address design challenges with an easy-to-use footprint that resembles a standard QFN. This new package type combines the advantages of flip-chip-on-lead with the improved thermal performance presented by a large thermal die attach pad (DAP).

A New Perspective on Materialism

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and KEMET

When choosing capacitors or other passive components, it’s easy to get bogged down in the datasheets. But, how often do you think about the properties of the materials these components are made from? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Patrik Kalbermatten of KEMET take a fascinating look at material classification, the role of ferrite in systems, and the development of metal composite piezo ceramic powders to give us sustainable sources for our component materials.
