Fujitsu HDTV multi-decoder processor gets NAGRA certification

Fujitsu Semiconductor Asia (FSAL) announced that its HDTV
multi-decoder processor MB86H611 with advanced security architecture has been
certified by NAGRA, a provider of advanced content protection and multi-screen
user experienced solutions.

With the
growth of the operator market spanning the globe, content protection has become
increasingly important to the market players, particularly in emerging markets.
Fujitsu Semiconductor has leveraged its expertise in cost-sensitive free-to-air
STB market for the development of paid TV solutions. Being compliant to NAGRA
On-Chip Security requirements version 1.1. (NOCS 1.1), MB86H611 enables to run
NAGRA’s latest products on the Fujitsu’s platform.


MB86H61 series is an integrated HD Multi-Standard Digital Television Decoder
designed to meet the needs of globally expanding HD set-top-box and IDTV market
featuring CI+ and/or embedded CAS for advanced security. The MB86H61 is a
single-chip video decoder supporting H.264 / AVC, MPEG-2, AVS and VC-1 video
decoding up to high definition resolution with up to 1080p 50/60Hz output.

processing units include a high performance ARM 1176JZF-STM CPU with more than
475DMIPS, an advanced, programmable audio processor offers full flexibility of
decoding MPEG1 layer 1, 2 and 3 (MP3), HE-AAC, Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital
plus; and a 2D graphic engine to accelerate OSD. 

interfaces are consisted of copy protected HDMI, CCIR656 (SD) or SMPTE
296M/274M (HD) for video outputs; 4x I²S from 8kHz to 192kHz, SPDIF and stereo
audio DAC for audios; as well as eSATA/SATA 3Gb/s, SDIO, two USB 2.0 and 10/100
Base-T Ethernet MAC. A deep power down mode allows a system design with very
low power consumption during standby mode.

increasing demands driven by the customers, the bar of performance for set-top
boxes has been pushed higher and higher while security stays as a critical
concern to address,” said Mr. Andy Chang, associate vice president of Fujitsu
Semiconductor Asia.

of the MB86H611 chipset are available and the development of set-top boxes
embedding NAGRA’s Conditional Access System (CAS) and Digital Rights Management
(DRM) products can be started now.
