Cypress Semiconductor Corp. has teamed with Conexant to send video, audio and data over a single USB 2.0 connection to the PC host for immediate playback and storage. The reference design is a low-cost solution--eliminating the multiple wires for audio and video. The first result of the combined effort is Conexant's CX25840/1/2/3 audio/video and data (AVD) USB 2.0 streaming reference design kit (RDK) based on Cypress's EZ-USB FX2 USB solution.

The RDK is claimed to deliver high-quality video, stereo audio quality, and data services over a single USB 2.0 cable to the PC. The RDK meets USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) bus-powered requirements; therefore no external power supply cords are required.

The AVD USB streaming solution is complete with drivers, gerber files, schematics (for multiple tuners from Philips and LG), and bill-of-materials. The platform is based on Windows device model (WDM) driver architecture that is compatible with Windows XP and media center edition (MCE) operating system and is Windows hardware quality labs (WHQL) certified. Additionally, the drivers are compatible with multiple third-party software applications for watching TV and burning to DVD.
