Low-cost LSI products with enhanced security functions for set-top boxes



The EMMA2SL (µPD6121x) decoder provides a powerful, highly integrated, single chip solutions for digital STB and iDTV, and has a number of feature variants to meet the demanding markets with low-cost solutions. This product incorporates external components including voltage controlled crystal oscillator (VCXO) circuit in addition to a high-end processor and a high-speed memory interface.

EMMA2SL/P (µPD61214,5) decoder, a variant of EMMA2SL (µPD6121x), has built-in security features allowing broadcasters to protect valuable audiovisual content, and preserve IP developed by CA vendors, middleware providers and STB designers at a low-cost.

Target System

  • Low-end STBs and iDTVs
  • Systems with advanced security features (SL/P)
