Genesis Microchip and Legend Silicon deliver Chaplin DTV platform for China

Genesis Microchip, a developer of image processing technologies for flat-panel TVs, monitors and other consumer display products, and Legend Silicon, a fabless semiconductor company that develops technology and Application-Specific Standard Products (ASSP) for digital terrestrial television broadcasting reception, have announced a market-ready DTV platform customized for TV manufacturers to deliver fully featured DTVs into the Chinese market.

The DTV platform features Genesis Microchip's single-chip integrated HDTV controller, Chaplin, enabling MPEG decoding, and Faroudja video processing combined with a front-end module featuring Legend Silicon's demodulator, LGS-8913-A1.

Legend Silicon's demodulator, which receives an IF signal from the tuner, demodulates China's new standard-based IF signal into an MPEG transport stream for processing in the Genesis Chaplin IC. The Chaplin solution then decodes the MPEG stream and applies its Faroudja video processing algorithms to output high-quality images on the display.
