Innovative System-on-Chip from STMicroelectronics Simplifies Multimedia Monitor Design and Enhances Viewing Experiences for Consumers

Highly integrated SoC integrates ST's Faroudja(R) technologies for multi-function full-high-definition, delivering home-theater levels of image quality

GENEVA, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a world leader in consumer ICs, is the first to combine a DisplayPort 1.1a and HDMI 1.3 receiver to support full-high-definition sources, such as Blu-Ray, while providing comprehensive analog-video and audio connectivity. The new STDP8028 SoC from ST simplifies the design of high-end Full-HD multimedia displays with its unique integration of video inputs, advanced video quality and usability features such as Picture-In-Picture (PIP) and Picture-By-Picture (PBP). The SoC is being designed into multi-function monitors and public displays by leading OEMs around the world.

While many chips targeting the multimedia monitor segment offer limited image-quality functions and interface choices, the STDP8028 delivers the highest functionality and comprehensive video-quality features, In addition, it also boasts the highest integration of various interfaces, making it suitable for large public-display monitors as well as superior-quality home audio/visual equipment.

The STDP8208 is DisplayPort 1.1a certified. DisplayPort, the open digital-interface standard for displays developed by VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association), enables high-bandwidth audio-video signal transmission using fewer signal lines than conventional display interfaces used in multimedia-monitor applications.

The device's integrated features include: multi-standard worldwide 3D video decoders for both standard- and high-definition inputs over CVBS, S-Video, and Component inputs; advanced Faroudja DCDi Cinema(R) technology to deliver high-performance; a high-quality video experience; and multi-standard digital audio decoders. In addition, the device's Game-Mode Support enables crisp graphics for gaming applications by maintaining less than one frame of delay.

Maximizing the value of its broad multimedia compatibility, the new SoC ensures high picture quality from various video sources by supporting Faroudja RealColor(R) technology and extended color gamut mapping support. Faroudja RealColor supports Adaptive Contrast Control II (ACC II) and Active Color Management-3D (ACM-3D), leading to exceptional video quality. This level of video quality technology, only previously seen on Faroudja Home Theater Systems, is now available in a single-chip solution.

Faroudja DCDi Cinema supports advanced format conversion up to 1080p resolution with pixel-based MADi (Motion Adaptive De-Interlacing). Implementing this MADi performance, the areas of an image that are not moving will be fully static (flicker free) and moving objects will have smooth edges.

The STDP8028 is in volume production and is available in a 409-ball HSBGA package.
