Pre-certified HDBaseT System On Module from L2Tek speeds design and reduces cost of 4K video transmission equipment


L2Tek announces availability of the Valens Colligo™ System On Module (SOM) – a turnkey, pre-certified HDBaseT 2.0 solution designed to minimise the cost, time and effort of bringing HDBaseT to market. With board design issues already managed, the Colligo SOM devices allow developers to focus attention on the interface connections needed to ensure a successful and timely product rollout.

Ideal for industrial PCs and medical applications, the small form-factor SOM embedded with the Colligo VS2310 IC is available in two configurations. The Valens Colligo TX is a transmitter device suitable for UHD (4K) source equipment such as industrial PCs and media streamers. The Valens Colligo RX is a receiver module that can be integrated into existing designs for displays, projectors and other types of video sink equipment.

The small form-factor (50mm x 50mm x 7mm) SOM employs the same pinout and carrier board design for both the TX and RX variants. The high-end Valens Colligo VS2310 chipset provides native USB 2.0 compliance and supports the 5Play feature set for relaying audio, video, control, Ethernet and power over a single cable for up to 100m. Its proprietary HDI digital interfaces enable multi-stream video, daisy-chaining, switching, distribution, aggregation and more.

Engineering samples are available on request from L2Tek.

• The HDBaseT Alliance was formed by Valens Semiconductor along with LG Electronics, Samsung Electronics, Sony Pictures Entertainment, the HDBaseT Alliance promotes and standardizes a digital connectivity standard converging full HD video, audio, Ethernet, power & controls over a single LAN cable.
