SAN DIEGO, CAVativ Technologies, Inc. announced today the VTV2320, a high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI™) chip that enables the connection of three independent HDMI inputs to a digital television. In addition, the VTV2320 allows any two of the three input sources to be selected for simultaneous or parallel HDMI and HDCP decoding and display.
By allowing three independent inputs, the VTV2320 provides the ability to connect multiple HDMI sources such as high-definition set-top boxes, DVD players, and gaming consoles to a digital television. In addition, the VTV2320's dual output decoding feature enables manufacturers to offer HD-PIP (Picture-in-Picture) and HD-split screen features.
By using on-chip digital adaptive equalization, Vativ’s receiver can recover signals error-free from HDMI transmit sources up to 40 meters away. Thus, the equalization performance of the VTV2320 exceeds the standard's requirement by 500%.
The device incorporates two HDCP decryption engines with on chip, factory programmed keys. The receiver also includes a digitally controlled phase locked loop (DPLL). It is fully compliant to the HDMI 1.2 standard; and it supports all resolutions including 1080p on both outputs. The chip consumes a maximum power of 2.0W when both outputs are operating at the highest pixel rate. It is available in a 15 x 15 mm BGA package.
The VTV2320 IC is priced at $12 in 10K quantities. Samples and evaluation modules are available now, with volume production slated for Q2 of 2006.
