AD8134 Help Required

Hello everyone,

 

I require to convert RGsB (Gs means "Sync on Green") signals of a Single Ended video stream into Differential output.

I researched and found AD8134 to be suitable for the job. I developed an evaluation board on the resources available on Analog Site, and I looked at following discussion to create a board for AD8134 (I used the designs for AD8142 (same as AD8134) in the answer of AnnaFeB ):

However, in my card i kept the option to give a "negative 5" volt supply. In my case, i have no use for Vsync, Hsync and Sync Level pins (atleast that is what i think, since my Sync signal is on GREEN line), so there fore i have left these three signals "DISCONNECTED"

 

My issue is that once i start the board, power it up at "Positive and Negative 5 volts", and give no input, i get strange results on my outputs. the Red outputs, show no value, the green outputs show "negative 1 volt", while the blue output shows "Positive one volt". When i give an Input signal of "+1 volt" at all 3 positive inputs ( the negative inputs are grounded), i receive following outputs:

 

    1) R+ and R- show nothing

    2) G+= -1, G- = -2

    3) B+= +2, B-= +1

 

I do not think this working correctly, does this have something to do with the three signals i left unconnected?  please help..

  • I require some more help regarding AD8134. I wish for the output differential signals to be of much higher voltage (atleast 2-2.5 V). Can you please tell me

    1) if  I should start a new discussion for this?

    2) How can I achieve this using AD8134 itself (any possible work around to this)

    A potential solution could be to amplify the input signals before feeding them into AD8134. If so, which IC would be most suitable?
