Silicon Image Inc. unveiled its third generation of ICs compliant with the high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) and high-bandwidth digital content protection (HDCP) specifications for consumer electronics devices. Fully backward compatible with digital visual interface(DVI)-based consumer electronics systems, the SiI 9023 receiver features dual HDMI inputs at a lower cost point than the previous generation and supports full 1920 x 1080 progressive (1080p) resolution for HDTVs.

According to the press release, the new HDMI receivers extend the capabilities of the second-generation chip, the SiI 9021 receiver. Targeted at HDTVs, the SiI 9023 receiver features dual HDMI inputs for simultaneous connection of multiple HDMI source devices such as DVD players and high-definition STBs.

The new HDMI receivers support HDCP, the technology endorsed by motion picture studios like Fox, Universal, Warner Bros. and Disney for the transmission of their high-value digital content. Both the Blu-ray and HD-DVD formats, which are coming to the market in 2006, require HDCP support through an HDMI or DVI connection to view movies at their highest HD resolution. In addition, the DVD Copy Control Association has approved HDMI with HDCP for Content Scrambling System content playback on DVD players.

Packaged as a 144-pin TQFP, the SiI 9023 receiver is priced at $7.20 for quantities of 10,000.
