STMicroelectronics N.V. has revealed the first member of the Newman family of TV SoCs. The FLI7680, codenamed Newman Ultra, claims to deliver unmatched performance and are designed for smart TVs.

The Newman Ultra architecture provides the level of performance that enables responsive TV applications and delivers unmatched video-decoding capability, boasted ST. With it, smart TVs can smoothly combine multiple video sources and applications in the same screen view.

The FLI7680 integrates a dedicated security processor capable of supporting a range of security providers' schemes to ensure the ultimate protection for premium content and personal data.

At the heart of this device, the combination of the advanced ARM Dual-Cortex-A9 SMP application processors and ARM Mali graphics processor, as well as dedicated audio and video decoders, crypto processor and flexible composition engine, deliver uncompromising system performance, noted ST. A software developer kit (SDK) will provide support for open-source Application Program Interfaces (APIs) such as Linux TV, improving time-to-market, porting cost and creativity.

Newman Ultra (FLI7680) is sampling in 1Q12 to early-access customers and is scheduled to enter volume production in 4Q12. Pricing is available to qualified customers.
