NXP Semiconductors announced that it would start sampling early next year a single chip LCD TV platform that integrates the company's PNX85500 digital TV processor, its proprietary Motion Accurate Picture Processing (MAPP2) technology and hybrid silicon tuner.

NXP says the TV550 platform will allow mid range TV manufacturers to achieve high definition TV features and internet capability so far restricted to high-end sets.

The device also features DVB-T, MPEG4/H.264 decode, HDMI reception and decoding of digital SD and HD content, as well as Ethernet and CI+ security capabilities for the delivery of IP TV content.

The company suggests the integrated platform will allow TV manufacturers to widen the availability of high-end features including LED (2D) sectional backlight dimming, guaranteeing optimum contrast and up to 50 per cent lower power consumption in digital TV processing. It says the MAPP2 removes the visible halo effect in motion pictures with technologies as frame rate conversion, movie judder cancellation, motion sharpness and vivid colour management.

Production-ready reference designs based on the TV550 will, NXP says, speed manufacturers' development and significantly reduce bill-of-materials.
