Processor for digital TV broadcast capable mobile phones enables VGA-size video recording and playback
Renesas’ SH-MobileL3V application processor is designed specifically for use in terrestrial digital broadcast capable mobile phones. The device enables smooth video display and recording - equivalent to that of a standard TV - and it facilitates the extraction of TV broadcast data and conversion to a JPEG image without loss of image quality. It also enables lower power consumption, and importantly, it provides the ability to customise mobil...
High-Density Flash Memory Added to Extended Temperature Range 16-bit Microcontroller Family
STMicroelectronics has announced four new advanced 16-bit microcontrollers in its industry standard ST10 family (ST10F27x).
