Conexant Systems Inc. has introduced a new family of MPEG-2 audio/video decoders for cable, satellite, and terrestrial STBs.

The CX24153/4/6 line provides manufacturers with a common platform on which to build cost-effective digital television STBs that support a broad array of applications ranging from basic free-to-air to pay television and interactive digital broadcast reception.

These decoders feature a memory architecture that reduces memory cost by supporting all system requirements in a single, low-cost memory chip. The devices can also be used as a back-end platform that can interface to a variety of broadcast front-ends through a baseband transport stream interface.

They also feature a video/graphics display engine that supports up to five independent image planes, a full-featured 2D graphics acceleration engine, and a full-featured STB HAL software solution.

The CX24153/4/6 decoders are packaged in a compact 27mm BGA and are priced at $15 in high-volume production quantities.
