To meet the processing tasks associated with emerging, next generation DVD formats, Cirrus Logic Inc. announced a single-chip audio processor, CS49700, enabling mass-market home theatre products, such as audio/video receivers, combination HD 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 theatre products such as mid- and low-tier.

With its 32bit, dual-core structure, the CS49700 generates true parallel processing power of 1.8GOPS (300MIPS).

Price is Rs.330.02 ($7.50) for 1 lakh units. The device is already in volume production.
