Conexant Systems Inc. introduced what it touts as the industry's smallest form factor, PCI Express 1.0a compliant and 1.1 ready audio/video (A/V) broadcast decoder.

Targeted at multimedia applications, the CX23885 captures and decodes both analog and digital television broadcasts, and supports worldwide audio and video standards. This single-chip solution integrates all of the functions required to perform television and external A/V capture. According to Conexant, this flexibility provides manufacturers with economies of scale, allowing them to develop a broad range of products that support both analog and digital broadcasts in standard or high-definition formats.

"New technologies such as PCI Express are required to support higher-quality multimedia applications on consumer electronics devices," said Al Servati, division director of Convergence Video products for Conexant. "Our new A/V decoder provides manufacturers with a single-chip solution that speeds and simplifies the transition to PCI Express, allowing them to bring products to market more quickly and economically."

The CX23885 is sampling now, with volume production scheduled for Q2 2006. This chip is packaged in a 14-by-14mm Pb-free 128-pin ETQFP, and is priced at $10 each in production quantities.
