STMicroelectronics announced its new TV System-on-Chip, a first-of-its-kind integrated 3D graphics accelerator empowering next-generation Internet TV services, casual gaming as well as appealing user interfaces.

ST's new FLI7540, showcasing the 'Freeman Ultra' line of products, supports high-performance TVs. The FLI7540 provides exceptionally high performance (1700+ DMIPS CPU with 256KB of Level 2 cache), reliable security dedicated for advanced middleware/Internet TV applications, and compatibility with worldwide digital terrestrial television (DTT) standards.

At the same time, ST has also announced a new high-quality Faroudja video-enhancement IC which significantly reduces TV power consumption while enhancing video quality for LED TVs and supporting 2D/3D. The FLI2520 'Diamond' video-enhancement IC offers the industry's first single-chip 2D/3D@200/240Hz with advanced MCTi(1) motion judder and blur reduction, plus 240Hz LED backlight adaptive local dimming and 480Hz backlight scanning for motion-blur reduction. Moreover, the FLI2520 is the first TV IC providing the royalty-free VESA interconnect standard internal DisplayPort (iDP) output to the panel timing controller. Given this opportunity, the iDP substantially reduces BOM cost and system complexity for TV set and panel manufacturers.

The BOM combination of FLI7540 and FLI2520 provides: broad content access and new business models with Internet TV; innovative user interfaces with OpenGL ES 2.0 3D graphics; silky smooth film- and video-motion compensation with 200/240Hz Faroudja MCTi; motion-compensated 3DTV@200/40Hz with 2D to 3D conversion; and substantial power reduction and enhanced contrast ratio with LED backlight adaptive local dimming.

Lastly, the FLI7540 is also software compatible with other products in the Freeman product line, and is the integrated expression of world-class technologies from ST's STB chips and the Emmy Award winning Faroudja video-processing technologies.

The FLI7540 and FLI2520 and associated platforms are now accessible for sampling to qualified customers. Pricing is available to OEMs upon request.
