NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, today announced it will be demonstrating its broad offering of high-definition (HD) video semiconductor solutions at the 2011 NAB Show, including the first in a new family of crosspoint switches that brings sophisticated signal-conditioning and input/output configurability features to compact yet feature-rich, low-power solutions for small- to medium-sized switching matrices.

Mindspeed will be demonstrating the industry’s broadest portfolio of digital crosspoint switches for video applications, ranging in size from 2x2 to 288x288, as well as its highly integrated, low-power, Serial Digital Interface (SDI) solutions. With the higher data rates required for the transport of HD and 3D video content, system designers need to resolve a variety of signal integrity challenges. Mindspeed’s crosspoints and signal conditioners, featuring the company’s advanced Amplif-Eye signal conditioning technology, are the perfect solution.

“Mindspeed continues to broaden its family of crosspoints, signal conditioners and SDI products, while extending their capabilities to solve a broader range of system challenges,” said Kurt Busch, senior vice president and general manager of the high-performance analog business unit with Mindspeed. “Amplif-Eye technology is a key feature and provides critical compensation and buffering functions that are becoming increasingly important for HD and 3D video applications.” In a separate release:

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, today announced that Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has integrated Mindspeed®’s crosspoint switch technology into Selenio, the broadcast industry’s first media convergence platform.
