FLI7510 SoC

STMicroelectronics brings to market a new generation of high-performance, full HD H.264/MPEG SoC ICs for the worldwide flat-panel DTV market. TVs powered by the SoCs will be able to offer new services and business models for premium content, while delivering a rich and intuitive user experience.

The FLI7510 is the first member of the new family of performance- and software-scalable SoCs, addressing mainstream and high-end segments of the DTV market. The device is designed to meet the increasingly stringent system-energy consumption standards for "green" consumer electronics equipment.

Addressing both the digital broadcast and fast-emerging broadband-Internet TV markets, the FLI7510 SoC is the culmination of the integration of world-class technologies from ST's industry-leading STB chips and the Emmy Award winning Faroudja video processing technologies from Genesis Microchip, which ST acquired in 2008.

"The FLI7510 builds upon an industry-leading scalable architecture that has been deployed in many CE products. The chip powerfully supports a common global chassis approach to TV design and enables a new class of TV products offering exciting new user-interface capabilities," said Luigi Mantellassi, general manager of the TV and monitor division of ST. "Together with additional members of the 'Freeman' family, which will be introduced in 2010, the FLI7510 sets a new market reference in terms of system, audio, video and graphics performance for Internet TV applications."

Compatible with digital terrestrial TV standards worldwide, the FLI7510 comprises an extensive portfolio of industry-leading capabilities. It offers a flexible and powerful decoder, providing support for all major video content formats; world-class Faroudja-optimized video and audio processing; Internet TV-ready environment including fully dedicated application processor and advanced graphics capabilities; content protection via secure processor supporting major standards; and field-proven, high-level API for accelerated time-to-market for TV OEMs.

The FLI7510 SoC is now sampling to qualified customers. Pricing is available upon request.
