Troy evaluation kit

Frontier Silicon has introduced a complete evaluation kit called Troy that allows designers to explore the capabilities of its Apollo RF receiver and Kino2 chipset for mobile TV applications.

The Troy kit enables developers to test and measure the performance of Frontier Silicon's mobile TV chipset in lab and real-life situations, and is configurable through a USB interface, the company said. It receives a T-DMB RF signal on Band III and L Band, and delivers an MPEG-2 transport stream to a host processor for audio and video decoding.

According to the press release, Troy can process up to four simultaneous T-DMB streams, each displayed in a separate player window on the PC. The streams can be started and stopped using the AV control area's play and stop buttons. Once evaluation is completed using the PC, a flexible media processor connector enables easy interfacing to media and application processor development kits, allowing quick mobile TV reference platform development, the company explained.

The kit supports dual-band, multi-mode operationBand-III, L-Band for T-DMB, eDMB, DAB-IPand the software includes T-DMB decoder object code and reference PC utility source code. The SPI-USB bridge included allows a standard PC to act as the host processor, and the interface connector also contains serial SPC, GPIO and I2S signals. The media processor connector supports multiple supply voltages enabling connection to all popular media processor development kits.

The Apollo RF receiver and Kino2 baseband processor IC chipset provides mobile TV handset manufacturers with maximum flexibility to easily customize their products to meet the needs of their customers and offer high quality TV and radio services, said Frontier.
