Philips' Semiconductor Solutions Paired with BenQ's DVD Engines
Posted Dec 16, 2003 Print Version     Page 1of 1

Royal Philips Electronics announced that it is teaming up with BenQ, a leading DVD recorder engine manufacturer, to introduce a DVD-recorder monoboard solution targeted at consumer electronic Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). Philips already possesses a portfolio of Nexperia DVD-recorder reference designs and recently introduced its highly integrated PNX7200 MPEG-2 codec, which uniquely handles all of the necessary MPEG-2 encoding, decoding and transcoding on a single-chip. This latest collaboration pairs BenQ's DVD engines with Philips' proven, compatible and feature-rich MPEG solutions onto a single board to advance the adoption of DVD video recorders into the high-volume market.

The monoboard produced by BenQ combines the BenQ optical engine, based upon the Philips PNX7850 chipset, with the digital board, which includes the recently introduced Philips PNX7200 MPEG-2 codec. A result of this integration onto a single board is a reduced Bill of Materials (BoM) cost compared to existent DVD recorder designs. CE manufacturers not only benefit from the lower costs and smaller form factor, but also the simplicity of sourcing various components. Lastly, there is an opportunity to improve the reliability and playability of the DVD recorder due to the proven combination of the engine front-end and MPEG-2 back-end.
