ATI announces TV-on-Chip

The new chip from ATI’s Digital TV Group integrates all the major components necessary for manufacturers to build digital integrated televisions.

ATI Technologies has announced the Xilleon 240, an integrated TV-on-Chip designed to enable cost-effective digital television (DTV) sets for the North American and Korean markets.

The Xilleon 240 delivers high-quality image processing display functionality required for a complete DTV solution.

The new chip integrates all the major components necessary for manufacturers to build digital-integrated televisions at lower costs and in advance of the fast-approaching DTV requirements. The FCC requires that 50 percent of all 25in to 36in TVs include digital tuners by July 1, 2005, and 100 percent of this same segment by March 1, 2006.

The Xilleon 240 includes a MIPS CPU, a digital front end capable of demodulating and decoding 8-VSB for ATSC terrestrial broadcasts or 64/256 QAM for digital cable, an HD/SD capable MPEG video and audio decoder, an NTSC video decoder featuring a 3-D comb filter, a video scaler and deinterlacer, and other image processing features.
