DALLAS (Nov. 5, 2003)– Enabling new types of portable and home entertainment devices, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) introduces two mixed signal video decoders, including the industry's lowest power, smallest size device available on the market. The high performance video decoders convert NTSC, PAL and SECAM video into digital component video in both portable and high volume, as well as high quality and high-performance applications including personal video appliances, digital televisions, handheld consumer electronics and mobile-phone TV's.
As the only decoder solution of its size and power on the market, the TVP5150 enables new products such as video capture devices and portable personal video recorders. With power consumption at 115 milliwatts (mW) in typical operation, and the industry's smallest footprint at 32-pin thin quad flatpack (TQFP), applications for the TVP5150 include PDA's, Notebook/PCs, cell phones, MPEG4 video players and USB-powered video devices.
Targeting the high quality, high-performance video applications, the TVP5146 is well suited for the high growth DVD recordable (DVD-R) market, and will also be integrated into PVR/DVR, LCD TV and monitor, digital TV and video capturing devices. The TVP5146 is very flexible with 10 video inputs and SCART support. Additionally, the digital video decoder includes a 5-line adaptive comb filter for best in class Y/C separation and four 10-bit, 30-MSPS analog-to-digital converters for superior noise performance.
The TVP5150 and TVP5146 are high performance mixed-signal video decoders that convert base-band analog NTSC, PAL and SECAM video into digital component video. The TVP5146 supports up to ten component video inputs including S-Video, YPbPr and RGB. The TVP5150 supports two composite or one S-Video input. Both products output ITU-R BT.656 and support Macrovision copy protection as well as advanced VBI functionality. Evaluation boards, software tools and application notes are now available from TI.
The TVP5150 and TVP5146 multi-standard digital video decoders are in volume production today. Pricing for the TVP5150 is $5.23 each and the TVP5146 is $10.87 for quantities of 10K units.
