Video Converter Debuts As First For HDTVs

Coming on the scene as the market's first adaptive video converter for high-definition televisions (HDTVs) and home theater, the two-channel AVC2510 drives HDTV screens with resolutions up to 1,920 x 1,080 and relies on a unique architecture, TwinD, that provides a secondary output for time-shifting or recording. For home-theater applications, it also drives LCDs, plasma displays, and rear-projection TVs. The device accepts PC graphics, as well as standard and digital video inputs, and coverts them to any video format and integrates a 3-D video pipeline and a secondary pipeline that perform scaling to support picture-in-picture and thumbnail functions. For development, a reference design that includes an ADCS9888 analog front end and LM1085 positive LDO regulators is available. In a 240-pin PQFP, price for the AVC2510 is $49 each/1,000.
