In combination with an INAP375R APIX2 receiver, the INAP375T transmitter device offers a high speed digital serial link for display and camera applications. It provides a DC-balanced, AC coupled low latency, point-to-point link over shielded twisted pair (STP) cables. Its scalable physical layer provides bandwidth of up to 3 Gbps at lowest EMI. The INAP375T supports popular automotive displays with video resolutions such as 1600x600 pixels and refresh rates of up to 100Hz or full HD 720p displays. The device offers a flexible video interface, configurable to handle 1 or 2 independent video streams, with input interfaces such as parallel RGB (1x24 Bit or 2x10 Bit) or openLDI (“LVDS”) e.g. 2x (4 lanes + clock). Software adjustable driver characteristics and configurable operating modes allow the transmission of 3 GBs at distances of up to 12m over a single pair of wires. In addition to the video transmission the INAP375T provides completely independent Full Duplex Communication channels. With a Media Independent Interface (MII), the INAP375T can be directly connected to an ethernet Media Access Controller, offering full network capabilities through the APIX link. Additionally, the link is optimized to carry low latency GPIO signals for reset or synchronization purposes. The built-in audio path allows synchronous transmission of up to 4 stereo audio channels, with precise clock regeneration at the receiver for high-end rear-seat entertainment.
Both devices are available in a 100 pin LQFP or a lower cost 104pin aQFN package. All devices are Automotive temperature grade and fully AEC Q100 qualified.
A respective ADK (Application Developers Kit) is also available, enabling development engineers to evaluate the devices and jumpstart system.
