high-definition format and quality on an HDTV.
The SiI9024A is designed to address the power
constraints and small form-factor requirements
of the mobile market. A QFN package option
offers ease of layout to address the power constraints and low cost requirement of the netbook
market. In order to fit the slim profile of today's
highly integrated mobile electronics, the
SiI9024A is available in 81 ball (0.4mm ball
pitch), 49-ball (0.5mm ball pitch) 4mm x 4mm
chip scale BGA and 72-pin QFN packages. The
SiI9024A maintains software compatibility with
SiI9024A Typical Application
the SiI9024. It supports resolutions from standard definition 480i/p and 576i/p all the way to
high-definition 720p, 1080i, and 1080p, the
highest resolution supported by HDTVs today. It
also supports all PC resolutions up to UXGA for
