The AT76C112 from Atmel Corp. is designed to read, decompress, and play back images and video clips stored in Flash cards, projecting those images through displays such as analog and digital TVs, digital cameras, and LCD panels and projectors.

It can be used in applications ranging from multimedia playback devices to Flash card reader-assessors for PC applications.

Touted as the first device in a new family, the AT76C112 supports multiple card formats including Secure Digital, MultiMedia Card, Memory Stick, CompactFlash, Solid State Floppy Disk Card, and Atmel DataFlash.

Tassos Markas, director of multimedia products, said the device requires fewer support chips than other image playback devices currently available. An embedded ARM7 processor controls the device, which features compression/decompression engines, Flash card interfaces and system interfaces including full-speed USB and UART, as well as digital video output.

The chip is priced at approximately $11 in quantities of 10,000. Samples and software libraries are available now, and evaluation boards will also be offered.
