Cirrus Logic has launched a family of ICs which promise cheaper DVD-ROM and DVD-players. Cirrus says it is the first supplier of a single DVD drive solution with its CR3700 DVD Drive Manager chip, integrating an RF amplifier, PRML data channel (read-channel), servo controller, content scramble system, DVD Error Correction Code, and a decoder with an ATAPI interface. The CR3700 also provides a direct interface to MPEG-2 audio and video decoders for DVD-Player applications.
