SAA7201H datasheet


The SAA7201 is an MPEG2 decoder which combines audio decoding and video decoding. Additionally to these basic MPEG functions it also provides means for enhanced graphics and/or on-screen display. Due to an optimized architecture for audio and video decoding, maximum capacity in the external memory and processing power from the external CPU is available for the support for graphics.


1. Uses single external Synchronous DRAM (SDRAM) organized as 1M ´ 16 interfacing at 81 MHz; compatible with the SDRAM ‘lite’ or ‘PC’
2. Fast external CPU interface; 16-bit data + 8-bit address
3. Single 27 MHz external clock for time base reference and internal processing; all required decoding and
presentation clocks are generated internally
4. Internal system time base at 90 kHz can be synchronized via CPU port
5. Flexible memory allocation under control of the external CPU enables optimized partitioning of memory for different tasks
6. Boundary scan (JTAG) plus external SDRAM self test implemented
