Firstly, am I blind or is there no link to the ADV7625/6/7 on the main HDMI interface products page? Looking here:
I don't see any links to those products, just to the older ones like the ADV7623.
Secondly, are there any design support files for the ADV7627? This link:
ADV7627 Design Support Files
says it will be available "in a few weeks", but that was a year ago. Is there a hardware manual for this product? If not in the public domain, is it available after signing an NDA? And if there aren't any other docs, is it sufficiently similar (aside from the second HDMI out) to the ADV7625 that we can design off the ADV7625's docs?
Thank you very much.
No, you are not going blind. That main web page needs to be updated
You can find all the links here
Read First: Design Support Files Overview
That link you point to is where I found the "in a few weeks" language. There isn't anything detailed there for the ADV7627. Can you please let us know where we can find a hardware manual and PCB design? Or can you tell us the specific differences between the ADV7623 or ADV7625 and the ADV7627 so we can use one of their manuals to design off?
Thank you again.
The ADV7625 is a newer part then the ADV7623. The ADV7627 is a subset of the ADV7625 and we use the ADV7625 manuals with the exception of only one transmitter for the 7627. As a matter of fact the EVAL-ADV7625-SMZ board can be made to operate the same as with a ADV7627 installed with a slight binary code change.
I would base my decision on the ADV7625 manuals and decide whether I needed a 5x2, 2x2, or 5x1 chip. Basically they are the same chip with just different bond outs and packages.
You can find the ADV7625 (ADV7626) binary and the ADV7627 binary for the EVAL-ADV7625-SMZ here:

Thank you very much, Matt, Guenter. I'll take a look.
