Maxim Integrated Products Inc. launches a family of highly-integrated SoCs and codecs designed for consumer applications. The TINI family of CE solutions claims to offer the highest degree of analogue/mixed-signal integration so that smartphones, tablet PCs, smart TVs, and home-monitoring cameras can free up board space for additional capabilities and functions.

The TINI portfolio includes power SoCs that include all the functional blocks needed to power applications and base band processors, along with mixed-signal functions like audio, battery management, and touch-screen control.

It includes the MAX11871 a touchscreen controller that integrates an SNR capacitive touch analogue front-end (AFE) with full backend processing on Maxim's MAXQ CPU with a custom DSP coprocessor and a super narrowband AFE that provides immunity to AC charger and LCD noise without any external components.

A third product is the MAX64180 Remote Cam SoC, an A/V sub-system with H.264 compression, ARM processor, and peripherals for home-monitoring IP cameras that are so small they can be placed just about anywhere.

There is also the MAX64180 TV Cam SoC for HD video cameras in smart TVs that enables a video camera to be embedded directly inside the TV bezel.

And lastly, the portfolio includes the MAX98089 and MAX98095 audio codecs that combine multiple audio blocks with Maxim's FlexSound processor.

Maxim is continuing to invest in its analogue integration capabilities, and will continue to build out its TINI portfolio with other highly integrated solutions.
