Camarillo, California - April 25, 2017 -

Las Vegas, April 25, 2017 – Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, and LYNX Technik AG, a developer of equipment for broadcast and professional AV signal processing applications, announce the integration of Semtech’s high-performing UHD-SDI solutions into LYNX’s revolutionary UHDTV-capable video processing platform, the greenMachine titan.

A new concept in video and audio processing platforms, the greenMachine hardware is a generic processing unit with flexible inputs and outputs and scalable processing power. By installing different software applications (APPs), the greenMachine provides precisely tailored processing to fit a wide range of end-user requirements. Semtech’s award winning UHD-SDI GS12070 Gearbox is a key enabler of greenMachine’s strong flexibility.

“By integrating Semtech’s solution, we are able to support both multi-link and single-link SDI interfaces for emerging UHDTV video applications,” said Winfried Deckelmann, CEO of LYNX Technik. “With Semtech’s UHD-SDI technology, we are able to provide our customers with added flexibility and innovative products.”

“LYNX Technik’s adoption of 12Gbps UHD-SDI into greenMachine enables innovative UHDTV video production,” said Don Shaver, Director of Video Product Marketing for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Products Group. “Semtech’s 12Gbps UHD-SDI Gearbox and comprehensive portfolio of broadcast semiconductor solutions provide industry-leading performance, features and flexibility.”

GS12070 UHD-SDI Gearbox

Semtech’s GS12070 UHD-SDI Gearbox is a revolutionary product with the configurability to perform both multiplexing and de-multiplexing between different UHD-SDI single- and multi-link interfaces. The device supports emerging 12Gbps and 6Gbps UHD-SDI interfaces as well as existing 3G-SDI and HD-SDI.

The Gearbox allows the seamless integration of end-products using 12Gbps UHD-SDI for 4K UHDTV applications into the pre-installed 3G-SDI based broadcast infrastructure. Single-link 12Gbps UHD-SDI to Quad-link 3G-SDI conversion, in both directions, is just one of the many features of the GS12070 UHD-SDI Gearbox.
