Integrated digital TV platform

11 June 2008 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

STMicroelectronics has announced the DTV150, a new cost-saving hardware platform for digital television.

The module provides demodulation, MPEG-2 high-definition (HD) and standard-definition (SD) decoding, full HD video processing, high quality audio, and the video switching functions, for integrated digital TV (iDTV) sets worldwide. This highly-integrated solution is built around ST's new STi1010 single-chip iDTV processor, which provides the capability to use the same chip for both digital and analog broadcast decoding, and for video TV processing.

The DTV150 is intended particularly for the mid-range iDTV market, but also offers a cost-effective solution for more price-sensitive products, enabling manufacturers to use a single platform for WXGA or full HD applications, with single- or double-video pipe for picture-in-picture display, and is fully compliant with middleware requirements, such as MHEG-5 or MHP (multimedia home platform).

At the centre of the chipset is the STi1010 processor - manufactured using an 80 nm CMOS process technology - which provides unified analog and digital TV in a single chip, with a common graphical user interface (GUI) and single TV processor for both analog and digital TV reception. It supports displays up to 1080p (1920 x 1080), including full 1080i de-interlacing using a 3D contour sensitive de-interlacer (CSDi) to enhance picture quality. The STi1010 has been developed from ST's established STD2000 iDTV processor, with enhanced picture quality, improved connectivity including embedded HDMI, dual LVDS output and a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface for JPEG and MP3 playback, and capability for decoding AD (audio description), Dolby Digital, and AAC (advanced audio coding) audio streams.
