Fujitsu embedded-FRAM LSI for DTVs enables use of 4-channel HDMI ports Fujitsu Limited has announced development of the world's first embedded-FRAM LSI for digital TVs that enables simultaneous use of four-channel High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) connector port. Sample shipment of the new LSI, MB85RF402, started from November 12, 2007. It supports the HDMI connector interface specification standard for digital audio-visual equipment.
The chip combines on a single embedded FRAM chip the display data memory for four HDMI connector ports, which previously required separate memory for each port. Using this LSI in digital TVs enables high-speed factory programming of Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) display data, and in addition facilitates reduction of overall production costs by lessening the number of parts required and reducing mounting space that was previously necessary.

By combining on a single embedded-FRAM chip the display data memory for four HDMI connector ports, the new LSI can reduce the cost of digital TVs while preserving their versatility as the centerpiece of home entertainment systems. This new embedded-FRAM LSI from Fujitsu will be exhibited at the Embedded Technology 2007 tradeshow and conference to be held from November 14 - 16, 2007, at PACIFICO YOKOHAMA in Yokohama, Japan.
