Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) is to enter the HDTV market with a ATSC HDTV SoC chipset designed to be implanted in LCD TVs.
Although it names no names, the Taiwanese company says SiS328 has already been widely adopted by major TV brand vendors for their next generation high quality Full-HD digital TVs.
A developer of edge core logic chipsets, SIS products are widely used in various applications such as PCs, notebooks, embedded systems, wireless communications, servers, and digital entertainment devices.
Its move into HDTV chips involves utilising the company’s Digital Nature Video Engine (DNVE) technology, a dual-input HDMI 1.3 receiver, 3D comb filter, two USB 2.0 ports, five analog audio stereo inputs and other features required to deliver ATSC tuning to an LCD TV.
SiS says products will be available for shipment starting in early Q2.
