Zoran Corp. has begun sampling its Generation9 Elite integrated high-definition television (HDTV) processor to qualified manufacturers in the U.S. and worldwide digital television markets.

Considered a leading supplier of HDTV chips, Zoran incorporates a scalable architecture in the processor, enabling OEMs to build TV sets that can easily connect with other digital devices, such as digital cameras, DVD players, PCs and other display devices.

The part is also designed for reduced power consumption and uses narrow-width memory systems, thus enabling OEMs to reduce bill of materials costs by trading memory and system requirements.

Generation9 Elite delivers double the CPU performance of the previous generation processor and further enhances the graphics, scaling and display processing capabilities for high definition televisions, Zoran said. Performance improvements in the multimedia DSP engine enable support for dual audio decoding, making it possible to simultaneously decode and display two high definition video streams.

The processor is available with an optimized reference platform that can be manufactured with few changes and a complete ATSC middleware stack including a customizable user interface.
