Analog Video Switches

Two concerns observed by the majority of design engineers designing systems with analog video signals are the high current consumption the video DAC requires to drive an analog video display and the impedance linearity of the transmission lines that these signals travel across.

In terms of impedance linearity, this concern is larger when switches are added to the equation. However, with Pericom’s patented charge-pump technology we are able to offer very flat Ron switches that provide ideal linearity in terms of impedance control such that signal routing is ideally accomplished. In terms of power consumption concerns, Pericom’s patent-pending technology is able to turn off Video DACs when they are not needed by intelligently monitoring and detecting when VGA displays are connected or not to the Video source.
