LSI DMN-8602

LSI Logic DiMeNsion 8602
DVD Recorder System Processor
The LSI Logic DiMeNsion-2 second-generation family of DVD recorder processor products is based on the proven DoMiNo™ architecture. The DiMeNsion-2 family is
intended for demanding, yet cost-sensitive, A/V codec applications that allow consumer
electronics manufacturers to offer a broad range of DVD recorder and other consumer
electronics products. A true system-on-a-chip solution, the DiMeNsion 8602 (DMN-8602)
reduces cost, design complexity, power consumption and time-to-market, and offers broadest feature set with the best image quality.
The DMN-8602 accepts video from broadcast TV and other analog video
sources and compresses and formats the video for storage on DVD in industry-standard
recordable formats. The DMN-8602 supports the simultaneous playback of previously
recorded video from DVD, which may be from the same broadcast program, time-shifted.
To support archiving digital camcorder content to a DVD, DMN-8602 integrates a second
generation DV codec. The LSI Logic Direct Digital Dub™ technology simplifies the transfer of personal digital content from a cam-corder to DVD over FireWire, with one-touch
control via a single remote.
• Record broadcast TV to DVD with
timeshift capability
• Store analog video on DVD
The DMN-8602 offers DoMiNoFX™ technologies – industry-leading pre- and
post-processing of video – to create a visibly superior viewing experience. LSI Logic’s

sion in compliance with the MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and DV-25 specifications, and video decompression in compliance with the MPEG-1, MPEG-2, DV-25, and MPEG-4 specifications. The
DMN-8602 also enables transcoding between DV-25 and MPEG-2. The product supports
corresponding audio compression and decompression in compliance with the Dolby Digital
CE and MPEG-1 layer 2 specifications.
• Integrated TV encoder and video
• High-performance memory controller
for support of up to 256 MB of
external SDRAM
• Second-generation DV codec
• IEEE1394 link layer with 5C content
The DMN-8602 supports the DVD-RAM, DVD-RW/-R, and DVD+RW/+R video
recording formats and complete DVD recordable drive buffer management. The DMN-8602
can support either half-duplex (separate recording or playback) or full-duplex (simultaneous
recording and playback) operations on the DVD recordable drive.
For playback applications, the product supports the play- back of DVD-Video disks
with Dolby Digital 5.1, MPEG-1 layer 2 and DTS audio encoding, and VCD and SVCD
disks. For audio playback applications, the product supports the decoding of DVD-Audio
protection and AV/C protocol
disks (MLP), Windows Media Audio (WMA) and CD-DA formats. The DMN-8602 also
performs all audio post-processing tasks such as 3D audio effects (Phantom™ Surround) and

In addition to including a CPU, graphics engine, and complete audio and video
systems, the DMN-8602 integrates an NTSC/PAL TV encoder, a second-generation DV
codec, a Unified Memory Architecture and a USB controller. The USB controller allows for
connectivity with flash memory cards and digital still cameras. This high level of integration
makes DMN-8602 one of the most comprehensive and cost-competitive DVD recordable
solutions in the market today.
The DoMiNo architecture – the foundation of the DMN-8602 product features
– represents the optimal balance between hardware and software. Repetitively executed,
computationally complex pixel processing tasks are accelerated in hardware execution
units. Higher-level data processing is performed on standard RISC processors, per-mitting
substantial product flexibility and use of industry-standard development tools.
The DMN-8602 is compatible with the LSI Logic C-Ware™ architecture, which
provides a standardized API that is reusable across LSI Logic DoMiNo-based consumer
digital video products, fully preserving software investment. C-Ware is inte-grated with the
Wind River Systems® VxWorks RTOS and is supported by an industry-leading software
development tool-chain.
