Cirrus Logic Inc. has introduced a single-chip audio processor, the CS49700, designed to meet the demanding processing tasks associated with emerging standards, including next-generation HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc DVD high-definition DVD formats.

Available in volume production, the CS49700 enables mass-market home theater products, such as audio/video receivers, combination high-definition DVD players and receivers and Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD players, at all price points.

For next-generation Blu-ray and HD DVD formats, audio processor ICs must support up to six surround sound audio algorithms, including Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS, DTS Master and DTS High Resolution, any of which may be featured within high-definition DVD disc media. The CS49700 supports each of these audio formats and is designed for home theater products such as mid- and low-tier.

With its 32bit, dual-core structure, the CS49700 generates true parallel processing power of 1.8GOPS (300MIPS).

Pricing is $7.50 in 100,000 quantities. The device is already in volume production.
