AV Receiver

TI's Aureus™ audio DSPs and analog solutions provide AV receiver manufacturers fast time-to-market for differentiated solutions along with headroom for easy customization for the most realistic listening experience.


High-quality digital audio formats, such as the lossless HD audio formats found on Blu-ray discs, present AV receiver system designers with many engineering challenges. Digital connectivity, content protection, compatibility with new decoding standards and the need for fast data rates with superior analog performance throughout the entire audio signal chain require careful attention to semiconductor device selection, power supply design and PCB layout. AV end equipment designers can take advantage of TI’s expertise in audio and video DSPs, as well as high-performance analog solutions, to deliver not only the highest performance products, but also the most cost-effective solutions to the consumer.

The core subsystems include:


The Aureus™ audio DSPs provide the processing power to handle the myriad of decoding formats as well as advanced post processing.
