This article describes the First Video SerDes Targeting Automotive Cameras (SN74LS153N). The principle is very simple, very practical. The circuit components can help you understand better grasp this principle. For example, in this circuit, you can go to find and buy these components: SN74LS153N.automotive rated transciever 

Intersil Corporation today announced the availability of the ISL76321, a unique Serializer/Deserializer (SerDes) interface IC targeting automotive rear view safety systems. This single chip transceiver solution simplifies system design by sending video data, bi-directional control information and power across a single shielded twisted pair (STP) cable. The product allows designers to lower system costs and simplify designs while improving transmission distance and video image quality. The ISL76321 expands Intersil’s portfolio to provide customers a complete rear view camera safety solution, joining the Intersil Techwell? display management,LEDlighting, ambient light sensing and power management devices.

The ISL76321 concentrates up to 16-bits wide video data and bi-directional I2C control information onto a single high-speedSTPcable, and can transmit data in excess of 20 meters. Remote control of the far end of the link, an attractive feature of the ISL76321, allows a controller to access an imager via its I2C interface through which operating modes and adjustments, such as exposure and windowing, can be made. Ultimately this feature facilitates camera operation under dynamically changing conditions. Sending control data over the same cable as the video data eliminates unnecessary complexity in wiring looms and reduces weight.

A camera link comprises a pair of ISL76321s connected via a singleSTPcable to establish a high resolution, serial data link between a remote video camera and a central control unit. This interface transceiver accommodates a wide pixel clock range from 8MHz to 50MHz, and raw data rates up to 1000Mbps. This provides a robust link for a host of automotive video-based passive and active safety systems including Lane Departure Warning, Signpost Recognition and Pedestrian Avoidance systems. Interest in such systems is increasing, as demonstrated by recent statements from the U.S. auto-safety regulator (the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) with proposals for backup cameras on all new vehicles in the U.S. by 2014 to reduce the dangers of drivers backing over pedestrians.

The ISL76321 uses industry standard 8b/10b encoding to improve signal integrity as well as giving the link hot plugging capability. Even in the noisiest environments, the unique, fast line-rate lockingPLLsystem (10 microseconds to lock compared to > 10 milliseconds with competing devices) helps ensure the reliability of the link — a key factor in safety-critical systems.

The ISL76321 enhances range by adding transmission pre-emphasis and cable equalization (EQ). These features have 16 levels of programmability, enabling the product to drive 20 meters of cable with multiple in-line connectors. Alternatively, in shorter distance applications the ISL76321 permits the use of lower cost cables to further reduce system costs. The transceivers’ EQ increases the signal-to-noise ratio at the receiver end with no increase to radiatedEMI.

Finally, Intersil’s solution helps to facilitate the implementation of a low cost power-over-LVDSscheme for modest load currents (up to one amp). Such a system can supply remote end power over the sameSTPcable, further reducing wiring loom complexity, cost and weight, along with simplifying theOEMinstallation challenges.

Pricing and Availability

The ISL76321 is now qualified to AECQ100 grade 2 (-40°C to 105°C). It is supplied in a small 48-leadTQFNpackage and is priced at $4.55 each in 1,000-unit quantities. The device is currently sampling to qualified customers with volume production scheduled for January 2011. An evaluation system comprising transmit and receiver boards and a MolexHSALink cable system is available for customers to evaluate product performance.
