The new IC splits 4K ultra HD (3840 x 2160) video stream into the left and right images, and outputs from dual MIPI® CSI-2 interfaces. It supports conversion of high resolution 4K ultra HD video at 30 fps, contributing to high quality video processing.

The IC also supports conversion of HDMI® audio input stream to I2S, TDM, or MIPI SLIMbus® (Serial Low-power Inter-chip Media Bus), allowing use in a wide range of applications.

Key Features

  • HDMI® 1.4 RX support
    • 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) @30fps (RGB, YCbCr444:24bpp, YCbCr422: 24bpp)
    • HDCP 1.3
    • 3D support
  • Availability of any of the three audio interfaces: I2S, TDM or SLIMbus® (Serial Low-power Inter-chip Media Bus)
  • Maximum 1Gbps/lane link speed MIPI® CSI-2 interface
  • Maximum 297MHz HDMI® clock speed


Set top boxes, smart TVs, smart monitors, and digital media adapters
