Mon, 09/13/2010 - 11:19am
STMicroelectronics announces a new TV System-on-Chip (SoC) offering the first-of-its-kind integrated 3D graphics accelerator (OpenGL-ES 2.0 and OpenVG 1.1 compliant), enabling next-generation Internet TV services, exciting user interfaces and casual gaming.

  ST’s new FLI7540, representing the ‘Freeman Ultra’ line of products, powers high-performance TVs that demand exceptional video, audio, and user-interface capabilities. The FLI7540 delivers exceptionally high performance (1700+ DMIPS CPU with 256 kbytes of Level 2 cache, strong security dedicated for advanced middleware/Internet TV applications, and is compatible with worldwide digital terrestrial television (DTT) standards.

  ST has also introduced a new high-quality Faroudja video-enhancement IC that dramatically reduces TV power consumption and boosts video quality for LED TVs while offering best-in-class experience for 2D/3DTV. The FLI2520 “Diamond” video-enhancement IC delivers the industry’s first single-chip 2D/3D@200/240 Hz with advanced MCTi motion judder and blur reduction, plus 240Hz LED backlight adaptive local dimming and 480Hz backlight scanning for motion-blur reduction.

    The FLI2520 is also the first TV IC offering the royalty-free VESA interconnect standard iDP (internal DisplayPort) output to the panel timing controller. For TV set and panel manufacturers, iDP substantially reduces BOM cost and system complexity, in comparison to alternative approaches.
