Royal Philips Electronics announced that Asus is using its advanced solution for analog TV to deliver motherboard with TV reception. The two-chip solution from Philips includes a silicon tuner and audio/video decoder in a compact form factor to make it easy for motherboard manufacturers to add analog TV reception to their designs.

"Philips' advanced solutions for analog TV have helped us to compete effectively in the PC TV card market," said Joe Hsieh, VP of motherboard business department at Asustek. "Philips has made it possible for us to incorporate this technology directly onto our motherboard designs," Hsieh added.

Philips says the two-chip solution includes all the necessary functions to enable analog TV reception on a PC and is less than half the size of traditional CAN tuner solutions used in TV cards. It supports all global TV standards including NTSC, PAL and SECAM, and with the addition of the TDA10046 channel decoder, it can also support DVB-T digital TV reception.

In addition to enabling TV reception on a motherboard, the integration of the chip enables simpler and smaller board design to reduce manufacturing costs and time-to-market for manufacturers of TV cards, the company added.
