MANHASSET, N.Y. LSI Logic Corp. and Micronas have announced the availability of a qualified reference design that provides all of the functions for a high-quality, feature-rich, flat-panel integrated digital TV (IDTV).
The design is based on the DoMiNo DMN-8833 ATSC
decoder processor from LSI (Milpitas, Calif.), the DRX-H ATSC/QAM demodulator from Micronas (Freiburg, Germany) and the Micronas VCT-P all-in-one flat-panel TV processor. Together with the LSI IDTV ATSC software stack, the solution enables a fast-track upgrade for existing VCT-P customers and gives TV makers a stable, proven platform to quickly and cost effectively get to market with a range of ATSC IDTVs.
The design allows for processing, decoding and displaying ATSC broadcast content; processing and displaying analog, digital, HD and SD signal sources; improving video quality with advanced signal processing algorithms; and decoding surround sound audio.
The LSI DMN-8833 decodes SD and HD content (up to 1080i) in compliance with the ATSC specifications and decodes audio in compliance with the Dolby Digital CE and MPEG-1 layer 2 specifications.
