STMicroelectronics N.V. unveils the FLI7680, codenamed Newman Ultra, the first member of the Newman family of TV SoCs targeted at smart TVs.

Allowing the smooth combination of multiple video sources and applications in the same screen view, the Newman Ultra architecture boasts the level of performance that enables responsive TV applications and delivers unmatched video-decoding capability.

The FLI7680 integrates a dedicated security processor capable of supporting a range of security providers' schemes to ensure the ultimate protection for premium content and personal data.

At the heart of this device, the combination of the advanced ARM Dual-Cortex-A9 SMP application processors and ARM Mali graphics processor, as well as dedicated audio and video decoders, crypto processor and flexible composition engine, deliver uncompromising system performance, noted ST. A software developer kit (SDK) will provide support for open-source Application Program Interfaces (APIs) such as Linux TV, improving time-to-market, porting cost and creativity.

Newman Ultra (FLI7680) is sampling in Q1 12 to early-access customers and is scheduled to enter volume production in Q4 12. Pricing is available to qualified customers.
