ASUS will use Philips' chipset solution for analog TV to deliver its first motherboard with TV reception.
The two-chip solution from Philips includes a silicon tuner and audio/video decoder in a compact form
factor to make it easy for motherboard manufacturers to add analog TV reception to their designs. The
TDA8275 silicon tuner and SAA7131 audio/video decoder enable the consumer to enjoy TV on their
PCs without the necessity of purchasing an add-on TV card.
Philips' two-chip solution includes all the necessary functions to enable analog TV reception on a PC
and is less than half the size of traditional CAN tuner solutions used in TV cards. It supports all global
TV standards including NTSC, PAL and SECAM, and with the addition of the TDA10046 channel
decoder, it can also support DVB-T digital TV reception. In addition, the integration of the chip
enables simpler and smaller board design to reduce manufacturing costs and time-to-market for
manufacturers of TV cards.
