Semtech Professional AV Interface Converter Devices Powered by Broadata Communications for Quad/12G SDI Wall Plate

CAMARILLO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading global provider of high-performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that Broadata Communications, a design and development company for transmission of digital media solutions over fiber, chose to integrate Semtech’s GS12170 SDI/HDMI Bridge ASIC solution, specifically designed for conversion between SDI and HDMI 2.0 interface standards, into its new Quad/12G SDI wall plate. When the GS12170 chip is paired with one of Semtech’s BlueRiver® devices, it can enable SDI over IP networks. The inclusion of Semtech’s SDI/HDMI bridge chip also enables uncompressed 4K video, seamless connection and low power consumption, multi-channel audio and large amounts of metadata to break through the barrier. between HDMI and SDI without requiring an expensive FPGA. Semtech’s ASIC is essential for enabling applications based on the Software Defined Video over Ethernet (SDVoE™) network.

“Our vision was a new one-gang wall plate enabling SDI over an SDVoE network. The challenge in designing this solution was to consider heat and space,” said Robert Waldo, President and CEO, Broadata Communications. “Fortunately, Semtech’s solutions, the GS12170 SDI/HDMI Bridge and BlueRiver AVP2000 AV Processor, offer low-power capabilities that enable a fanless wall plate design.”

Semtech’s BlueRiver platform, together with the GS12170 bridge solution, complements Broadata’s new wall plate, delivering uncompressed, near-zero latency UHD/4K video over standard Ethernet. The unique form factor and fanless design of the Broadata wall plate is specifically designed to support professional high resolution camera systems.

“As the SDVoE ecosystem continues to grow, end markets demand a wider variety of video interfaces. The combination of Semtech’s GS12170 and AVP2000 enables SDI over the SDVoE network,” said Don Shaver, vice -President of Video Products for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Product Group “Best of all, Semtech’s focus on reducing power consumption provides our customers with greater flexibility in industrial design compact.”
