NXP Semiconductors will start sampling early next year a single-chip LCD TV platform that integrates the company's PNX85500 digital TV processor, its proprietary Motion Accurate Picture Processing (MAPP2) technology and hybrid silicon tuner.

The semiconductor company says the TV550 platform will allow midrange TV manufacturers to achieve high-definition (HD) TV features and Internet capability so far restricted to high-end sets. The device also features DVB-T, MPEG4/H.264 decode, HDMI reception and decoding of digital standard-definition and HD content, as well as Ethernet and CI+ security capabilities for the delivery of IPTV content.

The company suggests that the integrated platform will allow TV manufacturers to widen the availability of high-end features including LED (2D) sectional backlight dimming, guaranteeing optimum contrast and up to 50 percent lower power consumption in digital TV processing. It says the MAPP2 removes the visible halo effect in motion pictures with technologies as frame rate conversion, movie judder cancellation, motion sharpness and vivid color management.

The company said that production-ready reference designs based on the TV550 will speed manufacturers' development and significantly reduce BOM cost.
