NXP Semiconductors today announced a new HDMI 1.4 transmitter solution, TDA19989, which enables consumers to transfer HD multimedia content from their mobile phones directly to a television via the TV remote control.
The TDA19989 features low power consumption, a small form factor, and support of full HD (1080i/p). The device supports the newly introduced HDMI 1.4 Type D micro-connector and provides an additional embedded Consumer Electronic Control feature, which enables users to control their mobile phones through their TV remotes.
"NXP has also reduced the HDMI low-power transmitter budget to sub-100mW, allowing for more than 7 hours? HD video streaming on battery via HDMI. In addition, the introduction of this new interface is a key element for Open Source developers to leverage HD availability on mobile phones," said Patrick Lejoly, marketing and system architecture manager, Product Line Media Interfaces, NXP Semiconductors.
To further reduce BOM cost and ease of design, the TDA 19989 provides additional embedded features such as CEC (Consumer Electronic Control). This feature eliminates the need of any additional device to handle CEC and enables CEC-connected devices to be controlled by only one remote control.
NXP worked on a Zoom OMAP34x-II mobile development platform (MDP) from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) to demonstrate the Consumer Electronic Control (CEC) feature. The Zoom OMAP34x-II MDP is based on TI?s OMAP3430 applications processor.
The TDA19989 is now ready for production, NXP said.
Key features of theTDA19989 features include:
Embedded CEC (Consumer Electronic Control)
24b parallel video interface
Embedded HDCP keys
50mW typical power consumption
Additionally, NXP provides a Linux driver, HDMI/HDCP certification capabilities and world-wide support.
