Serializers, Deserializers

This Product Selection Guide contains information to help select products in the Serializers, Deserializers category on DigiKey.com

Serializers reduce the number of conductors required to transmit digital information, by converting information provided to them in parallel format into a serial data stream operated at a higher symbol rate; deserializers perform the inverse function. Commonly used for transmitting video data between image sensors, image processors, and displays, devices tailored for other applications such as industrial I/O equipment are also available.


SelectionCharacteristics

Function: Indicates the device’s primary purpose within a circuit, the task it has been designed to accomplish.

Data Rate: Characterizes the maximum rate at which information can be transmitted or received by a device. Does not necessarily refer to throughput rate for user data, see device datasheets for further information.

Input Type: Identifies the type of input signal the device was designed for use with.

Output Type: Identifies the type of signal output by the device.

Number of Inputs: Indicates how many inputs this device can accept.

Number of Outputs: Indicates how many outputs this device provides.

Voltage - Supply: Typically represented by a range, this indicates the low and high voltage limits which one can expect standard operation. Voltages outside this range may damage the device and other system components.

Operating Temperature: Recommended operating temperature, typically given in a range or as a maximum. Exceeding these temperatures may affect performance or damage the device and other system components.

Mounting Type: Indicates how the device is attached.

Package / Case: Indicates the type of protective case used on an electronic component to allow easy handling, installation, and protection. This selection was determined to be the closest industry standard applicable to the supplier device packaging. Typically it is best to check the actual dimensions from the datasheet rather than depend on this terminology when designing your circuit.

Supplier Device Package: This is what the manufacturer calls the package of this device. They are manufacturer specific. It is typically best to use the actual dimensions from the datasheets rather than to go by this terminology when designing your circuit.
