The ISL59445IRZ-EVAL evaluation board contains all the circuitry needed to characterize critical performance parameters of the ISL59445. The ISL59445 is a 1GHz bandwidth multiplexing amplifier designed primarily for video input switching.
The evaluation board circuit and layout is optimized for either 50Ω or 75Ω terminations, and implements a basic RG-B video 2 input MUX amp. The board is supplied with 75Ω input signal terminations and a 75Ω back-termination resistor on each of the 3 outputs, making it suitable for driving video cable. The user has the option of replacing the 75Ω resistors with 50Ω resistors for other applications. The control lines contain 50Ω resistors to match the 50Ω output impedance of high speed pulse generators. Control line termination resistors are recommended for rise and fall times under 10ns to minimize unwanted transients. If DC is used for the control logic, the resistors may be removed; or the applied DC voltage can be reduced to 2.5V to reduce the dissipation in the termination resistor.
