Designed for the mobile market, the SiI 9020 discrete high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) transmitter from Silicon Image Inc. features low-power operation of 1.8V and chip-scale packaging.

The discrete HDMI transmitter chip is aimed at helping consumer electronics manufacturers add HDMI outputs to high-definition video (HDV) camcorders and digital cameras. The product is housed in an 84-ball BGA, 6-by-6mm chip-scale form factor.

The SiI 9020 supports resolutions from standard definition 480i/p and 576i/p to high-definition 720p and 1080i.

"The SiI 9020 enables camcorder and digital cameras to connect seamlessly to other high-definition devices such as HDTVs," said Steve Eidson, director of product marketing for consumer electronics at Silicon Image, Sunnyvale, Calif. "HDV camcorders are the fastest growing segment of the home video market, and with the SiI 9020, consumer electronics manufacturers can now offer the highest quality digital video experience to consumers by incorporating HDMI into their designs."

HDMI is a standard for connecting consumer electronic devices. It is a digital interface that carries uncompressed high-definition video, compressed or uncompressed multi-channel audio, and intelligent format and command data on a single cable.

The SiI 9020 will be available in the second quarter of 2006 for Rs.226.25 ($5) each in 10,000-unit quantities.
