Video Decoder


The TW9990 is a low power NTSC/PAL/SECAM video decoder chip that is designed for automotive applications. It supports both single-ended and differential composite video as well as S-Video. Typical power consumption is 110mW for composite input applications, and the available power down mode further reduces power consumption. It uses 1.8V for both analog and digital supply voltage and 3.3V for I/O power. A single 27MHz crystal is all that is needed to decode all analog video standards.
