with HDMI Level Shifter
The MAX14886 high-speed, low-skew, active redriver
multiplexer is ideal for switching between outputs of
dual-graphics systems and signal conditioning to meet
HDMIK v.1.4 compliance up to 2.25Gbps at an external
HDMI connector. It is used for switching between inte-
grated (e.g., Intel or AMD) and discrete graphics (e.g.,
NVIDIA or ATI GPU). The device is VESA DisplayPortK
Interoperability Guideline v.1.1a-compliant (requires
external DDC logic) and integrates seamlessly with an
external HDMI connector on the motherboard.
The device accommodates differential inputs as low
as 200mV and drives transition minimized differential
signaling (TMDS®) outputs to 1000mV (typ). A precision
resistor on the output level adjust pin (ADJ) allows differ-
entiated output back-termination resistors of 400I (typ)
to better meet HDMI mask jitter compliance, while main-
taining full TMDS swing requirements. The device sup-
ports AC-(DisplayPort) or DC-(HDMI) coupling directly
to the graphics IC and must be DC-coupled to the HDMI
connector. In addition, the device features current back-
flow protection at the HDMI connector and a low-power,
active-high or active-low shutdown mode.
The device operates with a single +3.3V supply, is
specified over the 0NC to +70NC commercial temperature
range, and is available in a 5mm x 5mm, 40-pin TQFN
