High resolution video solutions using single 5V power supply are described.
Video cable driver amplifier output stages traditionally require a supply voltage of at least 6V in order to provide the required output swing. This requirement is usually met with 5V supplies by adding a boost regulator or a small local negative rail, say via the popular LT1983-3. Such additional circuitry is unnecessary in typical 1VP–P video connections, such as HD component video, if the cable driver amplifiers simply offer near rail-to-rail output capability when powered from 5V.
