Targeting flat-panel displays, projectors for digital TVs, and PC monitors, the µPD9281GC super-resolution application-specific standard product (ASSP) supports the low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) interface, thereby reducing the number of necessary external components. The device also claims to reduce mosquito noise caused by JPEG and MPEG compressed images via a unique noise-reduction feature. Additionally, designers can select up to four specific sections of an image and apply the company’s super-resolution technology to enhance image quality of those sections. This feature enables the application of the super-resolution technology, such as applying the technology onto a specific area of the picture–in–picture display. Samples of the µPD9281GC are available for $20 each. NEC ELECTRONICS AMERICA INC., Santa Clara, CA. (800) 366-9782.
