Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) disclosed that China-based ZTE Corp., a telecommunications equipment provider, has adopted its Blackfin eMedia platform with Fusiv technology for a wide range of broadband customer premise equipment (CPE) devices including Internet Protocol (IP) set-top boxes.

The Blackfin eMedia platform combines media processing supplied by a Blackfin processor and network processing enabled by Fusiv technology. In an IP TV set-top box application, the software-programmable Blackfin processor microarchitecture provides high-performance media processing, efficient audio/video (A/V) compression, low power consumption and multiformat flexibility (MPEG-2, MPEG-4, Windows Media Video, VC1, Windows Media Audio 9 and H.264), at a price point suited for the consumer electronics market.

Meanwhile, the Fusiv network processing technology provides wire-speed performance, integrates the necessary network interfaces and handles security processing including digital rights management of IP TV or other media content.

Initial deployments are scheduled to begin this year.
