Update: MIPS Technologies Acquires Chipidea (August 27, 2007)
Tagus Park (Porto Salvo, Portugal), September 23, 2004
. ChipIdea Microelectrónica, S.A., a leading analog and mixed-signal IP and SoC solutions provider, announced today that CI7375tg - 210MHz Analog Interface for Flat Panel Displays has been silicon verified at 0.18um TSMC.
CI7375tg is a complete 3-channel AFE interface for Flat Panel Display and its silicon results meet all specification parameters.
It captures the analog RGB or YUV graphic signals generated on a PC or other device, and converts them into three 8-bit digital words with sampling rates up to 210 MHz. It includes all common video features such as flexible clamping modes, synchronism extraction, separation and pixel clock generation
“CI7375tg is new ChipIdea’s first silicon achievement with better performance than current requirements for flat panel video rendering. It shows a SNR better than 42.9dB at 210MS/s and an INL of ±1.1 LSB” said Carlos Azeredo Leme, CTO of ChipIdea, “with our analog expertise and knowledge of the video and imaging markets, we are commited to provide our customers AFE solutions ahead of any competition”.
