The project presented here is a differential driver for the transmission of high-speed signals over low-cost twisted pairs or coaxial cables. The project was built using the AD8132 chip. It can be used to transmit either analog or digital video signals or another high-speed data transmission. The board is capable of driving either a Category 3 or Category 5 twisted pair or coaxial cable with minimal line attenuation. It is capable of operating with a 10 meters of Category 5 cable.
This board converts single-ended Video/Digital signals into a balanced output that can be paired with “Balanced Line Receiver for Digital Signal Over Twisted Pair CAT-5 Cable” as the receiver, published on our website.
