Ashling introduces JTAG Debug Probe for NXP's new Nexperia TV550 Global TV Platform

Ashling Microsystems, in co-operation with the Home Business Unit of NXP Semiconductors, has introduced a new range of development and debug tools for NXP’s  PNX85500, the advanced processor for its TV550 global DTV platform.

The NXP TV550 is a new global single-chip digital TV platform that allows viewers to enjoy HD digital TV and Internet content with unparalleled picture quality on mid-range TVs.  NXP’s TV550, which features the PNX85500 processor and integrates NXP‘s proprietary Motion Accurate Picture Processing (MAPP2) technology, allows manufacturers to offer a range of advanced high definition TV features only previously available in high-end sets.

The Ashling toolset, supplied and supported by Arcadi Systems, offers a comprehensive solution for PNX85500 and TV550 application development.  The toolset includes:

The NXP TV550 is a new global single-chip digital TV platform that makes key features such as H.264, HD ME/MC, CI+ and IPTV available for mainstream TVs. To enable this NXP integrated an unparalleled number of complex IP blocks in an extremely efficient 45nm SoC.

The TV550 combines front-end video processing functions, such as DVB-T channel decoding, MPEG-2/H.264 decode, analog video decode and HDMI reception, with advanced back-end video picture improvements. It also includes next generation Motion Accurate Picture Processing (MAPP2). The MAPP2 technology provides state-of-the-art motion artifact reduction with vivid color management. High flat-panel screen resolutions and refresh rates are supported with formats including 1366 × 768 @ 100Hz/120Hz and 1920 × 1080 @ 100Hz/120Hz. The combination of Ethernet, CI+ and H.264 opens many possibilities for new TV experiences with IPTV or VOD.

The TV550 platform addresses a wide range of digital television requirements for the North American, European and Asian markets. The TV550 system is available in two different versions: with the MAPP2 technology (PNX85507) for mainstream TV sets and without the MAPP2 technology (PNX85502) to provide an effective BOM for lower-end systems.
