The SiI9022 and the SiI9024 are each offered with speeds of 85 MHz and 165 MHz. The SiI9022EBU and SiI9024EBU operate at 85 MHz and can support resolutions of up to 720p and 1080i. The SiI9022EBU6 and SiI9024EBU6 operate at 165 MHz and can support resolutions up to 1080p and UXGA (1600 Χ 1200 pixels). Consuming just 50 milliwatts (mW) for 720p/1080i and 80 mW for 1080p, the SiI9022 and the SiI9024 are the lowest power consuming HDMI transmitters in the market.
These new transmitters also help reduce system BOM costs with an integrated on-chip consumer electronics control (CEC) function, a universal remote control feature typically implemented with the added cost of an external microcontroller. This feature allows consumers to use a single remote control to run multiple CEC-enabled HDMI devices.
Pricing and Availability
The new transmitters will be available in December 2007, and are currently available for sampling, with volume pricing at less than $5 each. At 1K quantities, the prices for each transmitter are as follows:
- SiI9022EBU: $4.15
- SiI9022EBU6: $4.60
- SiI9024EBU: $4.35
- SiI9024EBU6: $4.84
