TI Ships 3 Million Ultra-Low-Power Video Decoders Hikvision

Texas Instruments has shipped 3 million units of its TVP5150AM1 ultra-low-power video decoder to Hikvision, the leading provider of video surveillance products in China. Hikvision leverages the optimized architecture of the TVP5150AM1 in compression cards, digital video recoders (DVRs), and video server products.

Hikvision has significantly elevated the development of China’s video surveillance industry and has maintained its number one position in that market for many years. The company has also made impressive progress in the development of the international market overall. By leveraging TI’s video decoder technology, as well as the company’s complete video security solution, which includes DSP and analog chips, Hikvision has been able to expand its digital video surveillance product lines, winning a reputation for outstanding quality.

Equipped with 4-line Y/C separation implementations, the world’s first small size video decoder provides uncompromised video decoding quality for surveillance applications. The optimized architecture of the TVP5150AM1 device allows for ultra-low-power consumption, consuming 113 mW of power in typical operation and less than 1 mW in power-down mode. The device uses just one crystal for all supported standards and uses a 1.8-V supply for its analog and digital supplies, and a 3.3-V supply for its I/O.
