Conexant and Pixelworks to Showcase New Digital Television Platform

12/23/2003 - Conexant Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: CNXT) a worldwide leader in semiconductor system solutions for communications applications and Pixelworks, Inc. (Nasdaq: PXLW), a leading provider of system-on-chip ICs for the advanced display industry, will feature a new digital television platform at CES 2004 in a private suite at the Venetian hotel Jan 8-11.

Conexant and Pixelworks will demonstrate a jointly developed platform that supports fully functional displays of either DVB-T terrestrial, DVB-S satellite or analog PAL/NTSC television streams on a 17” LCD flat panel display.

LCD flat panel displays include a number of advantages over traditional CRTs, projection TV and plasma display panels including a slimmer profile, and lower power consumption. Demand for these products is growing significantly, and this new platform will enable manufacturers to base their product designs on this chipset from Conexant and Pixelworks.

The demonstration platform leverages Conexant’s expertise in digital demodulation and video processing decoding, and Pixelwork’s proficiency in image enhancement and display processing to provide manufacturers the ability to receive, decode and process a video stream entirely in the digital domain, and display high-quality images on LCD flat panel displays.

The new platform includes Conexant’s single-chip terrestrial demodulator, satellite tuner and demodulator, MPEG decoder and PAL/NTSC decoder, as well as Pixelworks’ de-interlacer and scaler semiconductor solutions for image enhancement and display processing.
