Philips Introduces Nexperia Solution for the DVD+R/+RW Recorder Market
Posted Dec 10, 2002 Print Version     Page 1of 1

Philips' Nexperia reference design, complete with back-end and front-end integrated circuits (ICs), and optical pickup unit (OPU), will allow high-end consumer electronics (CE) manufacturers to rapidly develop advanced DVD+R/+RW recorders for the consumer audio/video (A/V) market at competitive price points. This latest offering completes Philips' DVD+R/+RW reference design portfolio, as highlighted by a number of recent Philips' announcements targeted at both the consumer A/V and personal computing (PC) data markets. Philips Nexperia DVD+R/+RW reference design is the first system solution offering CE manufacturers the technology, hardware and software necessary to quickly and cost-effectively introduce advanced DVD+R/+RW recorders into the consumer A/V market. The DVD+R/+RW reference design is based on a front-end solution built around the Nexperia pnx7850 processor and an OPU manufactured by Philips. The back-end solution is built upon the Nexperia pnx7100, a single-chip AVG (Audio, Video, Graphics) MPEG2 CODEC. The complete design presents a highly integrated solution that is optimized to meet the stringent cost, performance and recording requirements making it an ideal solution for the home living room environment. The newest Philips Nexperia video recorder system solution completes the company's overall DVD+R/+RW portfolio of semiconductor solutions. Earlier in the year, Philips introduced the pnx7100, an MPEG2 CODEC targeted for laser disk- and hard disk-based digital recording systems (May 20). Philips then recently announced a value turnkey reference design geared towards second-tier CE manufacturers featuring the pnx7100 as one of the key building blocks (October 22), as well as unveiled a front-end solution for high-performance PC DVD video recorders (November 4). Now Philips is providing a highly reliable DVD+R/+RW solution, combining both its front-end and back-end semiconductor expertise, for top-tier CE manufacturers. Samples of the Philips Nexperia DVD+R/+RW system solution, which includes the front-end chipset around the pnx7850 processor and Philips OPU, and a back-end chipset around the pnx7100 are available now. Volume production is scheduled for Q1 2003. Component pricing is $100.00 USD at volumes of 100,000 units.
