Renesas to unveil full HD video processor for cell phones

The days for Japan’s mobile digital TV standard One-Seg may be counted

Renesas, the world’s biggest manufacturer of microcontrollers, is planning to unveil a processor that will make it possible to view full HD video in 30fps on cell phones during the ISSCC 2009 (International Solid State Circuits Conference) that will take place in San Francisco from February 8 to 12, 2009.

The Renesas CPU features a maximum operating frequency of 500MHz and measures justĀ 6.4×6.5mm. It supports video in MPEG-4AVC/H.264/MPEG-2 and MPEG-4.

By way of comparison, One-Seg, the standard for digital TV on mobile devices in Japan and Brazil, has a maximum video resolution of just 320×240 at a video bitrate of 220 to 320 kbit/s.
