Samsung has unveiled its new system-on-a-chip (SOC) device for HDTVs and digital set-top boxes. The S5H2200 is a single-chip solution that incorporates dual HD MPEG-2 decoders. It can simultaneously provide high-quality audio and video for digital broadcasts to the subscreen as well as to the main screen, an ARM920T-based 330MHz CPU, and the company's picture improvement function, Digital Natural Image Engine (DNIe_).
The S5H2200 supports various display modes such as multiple picture-in-picture (PIP) and picture-in-graphics (PIG). It also includes 24-bit digital signal processor (DSP) for high fidelity sound and supports multiple-input transport stream decoder (TSD) for personal video recorder (PVR) applications. Interfaces for various peripherals such as memory stick, ATAPI, IEEE-1394 and USB make it compatible with external inputs from other digital devices.
