The ADV7121/ADV7122 (ADV®) is a video speed, digital-to-
analog converter on a single monolithic chip. The part is specifi-
cally designed for high resolution color graphics and video
systems including high definition television (HDTV). It is also
ideal for any application requiring a low cost, high speed DAC
function especially in communications. It consists of three, high
speed, 10-bit, video D/A converters (RGB), a standard TTL input
interface and high impedance, analog output, current sources.
The ADV7121/ADV7122 has three separate, 10-bit, pixel input
ports, one each for red, green and blue video data. A single +5 V
power supply, an external 1.23 V reference and pixel clock input is
all that is required to make the part operational. The ADV7122
has additional video control signals, composite SYNC and BLANK.
The ADV7121/ADV7122 is capable of generating RGB video
output signals which are compatible with RS-343A, RS-170 and
most proposed production system HDTV video standards, in-
cluding SMPTE 240M.
The ADV7121/ADV7122 is fabricated in a +5 V CMOS pro-
cess. Its monolithic CMOS construction ensures greater func-
tionality with low power dissipation. The ADV7121 is packaged
in a 0.6", 40-pin plastic DIP package. The ADV7122 is pack-
