7 Detailed Description
The LMH0303 ST 424, ST292, ST259 serial digital cable driver is a monolithic, high-speed cable driver designed
for use in serial digital video data transmission applications. The LMH0303 drives 75-Ω transmission lines
(Belden 8281, 1694A, Canare L-5CFB, or equivalent) at data rates up to 2.97 Gbps.
The LMH0303 provides two selectable slew rates for ST 259 and ST 292/424 compliance. The output voltage
swing is adjustable through a single external resistor ( RREF) or SMBus interface in 5-mV steps.
The LMH0303 cable detect feature senses near-end termination to determine if a cable is attached to the output
BNC. The LMH0303 input loss of signal (LOS) detects the presence of a valid signal at the 100-Ω differential
input of the cable driver. These features can be used to activate power-save mode. These features are
accessible through an SMBus interface.
The LMH0303 is powered from a single 3.3 V supply. Power consumption is typically 130 mW in SD mode and
155 mW in HD mode. The LMH0303 is available in a 16-pin WQFN package.
