Intersil Showcases New Audio and Video Technologies at International CES
The products on display include a new IC for still and video cameras as well as its Q:Active HD line of high-performance DisplayPort cables.
Intersil’s D2Audio DTV SoundSuite products are System-on-Chip Class-D digital audio amplifiers that provide a complete, cost-effective audio solution for digital TV systems, PC multimedia speakers, portable device docking stations and other high-volume consumer products.
The system also provides a complete audio system that combines an efficient audio processor and pulse width modulation “PWM” controller with extensive integrated digital signal processing and configurable audio processing algorithms – for the highest amplifier efficiency and lowest system material cost.
According to officials with Intersil, WIDESound x 4 Multi-Channel Soundbar Simulator creates a simulated virtualization effect that greatly enhances audio capabilities in flat panel TVs or other applications where full-sized speakers are impractical.
Also, the image sensor driving solution from Intersil includes a new ISL55112 dual CCD driver, which delivers fast, matched rise and fall times into highly capacitive image sensor loads. This results in stable, predictable CCD driver waveforms that meet the needs of portable still or video camera designers.
At CES, the Q:Active DisplayPort cables will offer deep color, full-bandwidth HD digital video running over the industry's longest and thinnest copper Mini DisplayPort “mDP” to DisplayPort hybrid cable.
The company will also show 50Gbps of Deep Color video information running 20 meters to a 25 megapixel HyperWall in stunning clarity. These active cables support the full 8.64Gbps bandwidth of DisplayPort 1.1, enabling a resolution of 2560p x 1600p through up to 50 meters of copper cable.
