Chrontel’s CH7117 is an innovative semiconductor device that consists of HDMI receiver, three separate 9-bit video Digital-to-Analog Converters (DACs), SDTV encoder, HDTV encoder, YCbCr 4:2:2 encoder and audio encoder, which can convert HDMI signals into CVBS / S-Video / YPbPr / BT656 / Analog RGB outputs with IIS or SPDIF audio output.

The HDMI Receiver and HDMI Transmitter integrated are compliant with HDMI 1.4b. The DACs are based on current source architecture. With sophisticated scaler engine and DDR RAM integrated, CH7117 receives the HDMI input signal with resolution up to 1920x1080@60Hz, and output SDTV / HDTV / BT656 / Analog RGB signal with any specified resolution.

With sophisticated MCU Embedded and the On chip Flash, CH7117 support auto-boot and EDID buffer. Leveraging Firmware auto loaded from the embedded Flash, CH7117 can support HDMI input detection, DAC connection detection and can be programmed to enter into Power Saving mode automatically.

The CH7117 also supports up to 8-channel audio input from HDMI port and output from the special audio output port with sample rate up to 192 KHz. Available audio bandwidth depends on the pixel clock frequency, the video format timing, and whether or not content protection re-synchronization is needed.
