Need analog switch

    I'm working on a remote switchbox for s-video for my home entertainment

    I need some analog switches with resistance of 20 ohms or less
    (assuming s-video is feeding 50 ohm loads). 4 (dual) inputs to one
    (dual) output.

    Handy if available in DIP, but I can handle SOIC. Cheap is also good.

  2. Did it occur to you to have a look at the
    manufacturers webpages ? What did you come
    up with ?

    Yes, mostly clones of cd4051's with about 80 ohms. Some nifty ones
    from Analog Devices with no prices quotes below 1000 each. Some
    really pricey ones from DigiKey.

    I can't be the first guy who would like a 4051 8x1 analog gate with
    better resistance specs.

    Fred Bloggs Guest and it looks like
    75 ohms.
  5. I'd go for buffered type switches, it means you can properly terminate
    the video sources, rather than depend on the intrinsic on resistance
    of the switches. Maxim had a reasonable range, last time I looked, a
    year or so ago. BTW video is 75 ohm not 50

    Cheap... well if the box lasts for 5 years, does it matter if the mux
    is 10€ or 3€?

  6. There are parts such as the Fairchild FSAV430QSCX 4-channel 1-of-2
    switch. About USD 1.50 in 100's. 7 ohms max, and rated for high-res
    video frequencies.

    Only because I tend to do a bulk purchase when I find a generally
    useful part. 10 at least, usually 25 to 50.

    There's a rather large set of 74hc4051 parts from various
    manufacturers with dramatically-lower Ron specs. Yes, it's
    true they have lower maximum supply voltages, but that's the
    tradeoff we have for our MOS and CMOS integrated circuits.

    I like the HA4314 4-to-1 video mux which exists also as the AD8184. It is
    not expensive and both can be gotten from Digikey and Radiospares.

  14. Maxim has some low resistance Switches.
    Then there are a few from Siliconix,

    Another option would be tristate output amplifiers,
    of which BurrBrown and Linear Tech has some.
    Have a look at the LT1203, a 150MHz video multiplexer.

    you can try these analog switch
    ADG451, ADG452, ADG511.
    I brought low qty 2pcs for $18/ea.

    Very low resistance and easy to use.

    Best Regards,
