Single-chip audio processor supports Blu-ray Disc, HD DVD formats

Austin, Texas— 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 32-bit, dual-core structure, the CS49700 generates true parallel processing power of 1.8 giga operations per second (300 million instructions per second).

Pricing: $7.50 in 100,000 quantities.
Availability: Volume production.
