STi5518 Datasheet

Recommended Posts

Hello HA,
I have found the following link at ST Electronics.

http://us.st.com/stonline/press/news/year2000/p845p.htm

It is the press release for the STi5518. This is a pretty interesting chip with a lot of features. If you do not find the data you need from this link, they have a contact link on this page. You can request the data sheet directly.
It would be interesting to hear about your project when you have time to share. ;D

I found some additional info about STi5518:

Overview
The STi5518 is a highly integrated single-chip decoder, designed for use in feature-rich mass-market set-top boxes. It integrates a high performance 32-bit CPU, a dedicated block for DVB/DirectTV transport demultiplexing and descrambling, modules for MPEG-2 video and audio decoding with 3D-surround and MP3 support, advanced display and graphics features, a digital video encoder, and all of the system peripherals required in a typical low-cost interactive receiver.

To cover the needs of DVD-capable set-top boxes, STi5518 integration options include a CSS decryption block, a Dolby Digital audio decoder and Macrovision copy protection.

An ATAPI interface support is built-in, supporting the glueless connection of standard Hard Disk Drives. In this way, the STi5518 is ideal for set-top boxes featuring trick modes such as live TV recording, pausing and time-shifting.

The STi5518 is backward compatible with the popular STi5500 set-top box decoder, allowing easy migration from the previous generation.

The high level of integration in a single PQFP-208 package makes the STi5518 ideally suited for low-cost, high volume set-top box applications



Features

Integrated 32-bit host CPU @ 81MHz
2 Kbytes of instruction cache, 2 Kbytes of data cache, and 4Kbytes of SRAM configurable as data cache.

Audio decoder
5.1 channel Dolby

I would be interested to know how you ascertained the data sheet for that chip. I abandoned a project 6 months ago that used a surplus STi5500 , I knew that it was fully video capable - and was planning to use it as a base in a home video entertainment/PC , however, I could not get the information on it. :)

Actually, the 5518 seems to be a very similar chip , so the documentation is of some help - as I haven't thrown away the other stuff yet.....
Thank you again...

Hi,

I'm looking for the STi5518 datasheet. There's a link for it in the topic "LIST of datasheets found so far" but it 's dead.

What's the new location of this file, please ?

I'm very interested of the functionnality of this chip.

Thank's a lot.

As I understand it: The manufacturer considered it to be proprietary information and had mixos remove it from the site. Contact hotwaterwizard directly and he can send it to you.
