The DS22EV5110-EVKC CAT5 / CAT6 Cable Extender Demo Kit provides a complete HDMI system extension solution with cost effective CAT5 or CAT6 cables, using Nationals DS22EV5110 - a DVI, HDMI Extended Reach Equalizer with Retimer and Output De-Emphasis.
The kit consists of following boards for different application needs:
- a DS22EV5110 receiver board with RJ45-in and HDMI-out connectors
- a passive adapter board with RJ-45 and HDMI connectors
The DS22EV5110 receiver board has two RJ45 jacks as the inputs and one HDMI female receptacle connector as the output.
The passive adapter board has two RJ45 jacks and one HDMI female receptacle connector, can be either the input(s) or the output(s).
The DS22EV5110 on the boards equalizes the long reach HDMI or CAT5 cable at the input, then sends out the low jitter TMDS signal to the HDMI cable through output.
All the TMDS signals are connected through one RJ45 jack between two boards.
The DDC signals are connected through an I2C buffer; the Hot Plug, 5V Power and 5V Ground are directly connected between the connectors, making this demo kit HDCP compliant.
A 3.3V VCC 1-pin header and a GND 1-pin header are used for the power supply for the DS22EV5110 boards.
Alternately, an AC/DC power adapter (>800mA) is required for each driver or receiver board of the evaluation kit to provide 5V DC voltage for easy portability. A 1.8mm DC Power Jack is used to connect the AC/DC Power Adapter. Nationals LP3965, a 3.3V, 1500mA, Fast, Ultra Low Dropout Linear Regulator, converts the 5V power supply voltage to a 3.3V power supply voltage that powers the DS22EV5110.
