Interface - Encoders, Decoders, Converters
NXP Semiconductors


The  SAA7115HL  is a video capture device for applications ranging from small screen products such as digital set-top boxes and personal video recording applications to large screen devices like LCD projectors that benefit from its improved comb filter performance and 10-bit video output capabilities.It combines a two channel analog pre-processing circuit and a high performance scaler. The pre-processing circuit includes source selection, an anti-aliasing filter and an analog to digital converter, an automatic clamp and gain control, two clock generation circuits and a digital multi-standard decoder containing two-dimensional chrominance/luminance separation using an improved adaptive comb filter. The high performance scaler features variable horizontal and vertical up and down scaling and a Brightness Contrast Saturation (BCS) control circuit. Based on the principle of linelocked clock decoding, the decoder is able to decode PAL, SECAM and NTSC signals into ITU-601 compatible colour component values.It accepts CVBS or S-Video (Y-C) analog inputs from TV or VCR sources, including weak and distorted signals. The expansion port (X-port) for digital video (bidirectional half duplex, D1 compatible) can be used either to output unscaled video using 10-bit or 8-bit dithered resolution or to connect to other external digital video sources for reuse of the SAA7115's scaler features. An enhanced image port (I-port) supports 8(16)-bit wide output data with auxiliary reference data for interfacing to VGA controllers, set-top box applications, etc. It is also possible to output video in Square Pixel formats accompanied by a square pixel clock of the appropriate frequency.The SAA7115HL can capture the serially coded data in the vertical blanking interval (VBI-data) of several broadcast standards. It also incorporates also a frame locked audio clock generation. This ensures that there is always the same number of audio samples associated with a frame or set of fields. This prevents the loss of synchronisation between video and audio, during capture or playback. Furthermore the second analog onboard PLL optionally can be used to enhance this audio clock to a low jitter frame locked audio clock. All the functions of the SAA7115HL can be controlled via I²C-bus.
