Milpitas, calif. LSI Logic Corp. and Micronas are offering a qualified reference design that provides all of the functionality required for a high-quality, feature-rich, flat-panel integrated digital TV (IDTV).
The reference design is said to give TV manufacturers a stable, proven platform that enables them to quickly and cost effectively get to market with a range of ATSC IDTVs. To address this market, LSI and Micronas have combined the companies' ICs, resulting in a qualified and field-tested reference design. The concept is based on the LSI DoMiNo DMN-8833 ATSC decoder processor, the Micronas DRX-H ATSC/QAM demodulator and the Micronas VCT-P all-in-one flat-panel TV processor.
Together with the LSI field-proven IDTV ATSC software stack, the solution enables a fast-track upgrade for existing VCT-P customers and offers all of the audio and video functionality required for a full-featured and cost-effective IDTV.
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. For more information on the LSI family of media processors, manufacturing kits and customer product
