Silicon Image Unveils HDMI 1.3 Input Processors

The PinnaClear SiI9153 and SiI9155 input processors support HDMI 1.3 with legacy analog video support backed by comprehensive interoperability testing by Simplay Labs. The processors offer multiple HDMI 1.3 ports with video resolutions up to 1080p at 60 Hz and a 36-bit per pixel color depth. In addition, they support the latest lossless compressed digital audio formats available in HDMI 1.3. These include Dolby, TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, and other HDMI-supported audio formats including high- bandwidth uncompressed digital audio and compressed formats such as Dolby Digital, DTS, and Super Audio CD. The SiI9153 is optimized for midrange, high-volume HDTVs with two analog high-definition component video inputs to support YCbCr or RGB formats. The component inputs feature an internal voltage reference, a digital PLL, clamping circuit, and a variable gain control. Additional features include two 12- bit digital ITU656 (BT.656) ports or a single 24-bit ITU656 port. The SiI9155 targets high-end HDTVs, featuring three HDMI 1.3 input ports and four component high-definition analog inputs that can be used for component video, RGB, and D-connector inputs. In addition, legacy standard-definition analog video support includes five composite video and four S-Video inputs. The SiI9153 and SiI9155 will be sampling in the first half of this year.
