DVD processor meets audio/video specs News & Analysis 1/25/1999 Post a comment Our design objective was to build a high-performance digital video disk (DVD) player solution with uncompromised audio/video quality at a low cost. In addition, the architecture needed to be flexible and performance-scalable enough to be able to migrate to next-generation process technology.
MPEG-4 systems need specialized CPUs News & Analysis 1/25/1999 Post a comment It is clear that the next generation of multimedia systems in digital television and networked multimedia will require a new type of embedded multimedia hardware architecture, to be used as a coprocessor in desktop applications or as the main processor in others. Driving this trend is the new MPEG-4 standard for interactive networked multimedia.
Feedforward error control tuned for CATV News & Analysis 1/11/1999 Post a comment The most demanding application in the field of AM fiber-optic transmission is for analog cable TV signal transport. System requirements and economics have forced the technical community to develop fiber-optic transmitters with low noise and extremely good large-signal characteristics. Linearity has become the focus of much work for both 1,310-nm and 1,550-nm applications.
