MAX7474 Datasheet PDF – Adaptive Equalizer

Part Number: MAX7474

Function: Adaptive Equalizer for Video Over Twisted Pair

Package: SSOP 16 Pin Type

Manufacturer: Maxim Integrated


MAX7474 datasheet



The MAX7474 adaptive equalizer recovers losses incurred in the transmission of a composite video (CVBS) signal over unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable. The device fully recovers losses for cable lengths of up to 300m and greatly improves signal quality for cable lengths of up to 600m. The device automatically adapts to all cable lengths for CVBS signals with
color burst and allows fixed-equalization settings for video signals without burst.

The MAX7474 is optimized to provide compensation for losses that occur when transmitting composite video signals over UTP cables such as Category 5e. The device compensates for low frequency and chroma band losses. The MAX7474 is compatible with NTSC and PAL standards.
