Integrated digital video chip designer Divio Inc is now offering a single-chip codec that lets manufacturers design solid-state camcorders that combine 30 fps, MPEG-4 video, high fidelity AAC 2-channel audio, and up to 4-megapixel digital still camera functionality.

"The NW901 is a first-of-a-kind solution that enables an entirely new class of solid-state camcorders," says Director of Marketing Steve Musallam.

"By combining the best-of-class technologies in digital video, audio and still pictures, Divio will allow manufacturers to build this new generation of camera for the consumer market. The highly integrated NW901 reduces time-to-market and development costs and allows camera manufacturers to develop more innovative, compact and low-cost designs."

Major features of the NW901 include:

MPEG-4 VIDEO - - Full CODEC functionality at 64 Kbps to 2 Mbps - 30 fps / 25 fps (NTSC/PAL) Full natural motion frame rate - CIF resolution (352 x 288) - I, P, and B frames - 1/4 PEL Motion Estimation - Pre-processor: temporal noise reduction - Post-processor: de-blocking and de-ringing filters

AAC 2-CHANNEL AUDIO - - Full CODEC functionality at 16 to 384 Kbps - 24 to 48 KHz user-selectable sample rates

4-MEGAPIXEL DSC - - VGA to 4-Megapixel sensor support - High performance hardware JPEG CODEC - User selectable compression ratios - Auto white balance (AWB), auto exposure (AE), and auto flash- strobe control - Bad pixel interpolation - Zoom lens control

Designed in a 0.18 micron process, the NW901 supports standard 1.8 V (core) 3.3 V (I/O) and is housed in a 352 BGA package.

Divio has also created a "SDcam" reference design for camera manufacturers to develop solid-state camcorders. It includes:

- NW901 CODEC - High-quality Megapixel CCD sensor/lens - 32-bit Host microcontroller with Secure Digital (SD) interface - Composite and S-video video-in and video-out - LCD monitor screen - 10-Key key pad - Schematics, firmware, and technical documents
