HD/SD Scaler (Custom ASIC)

Description
HD/SD Scaler so-called EN531 is a full custom ASIC that could scale down from HD (1280x720, 60p/50p) and SD progressive (720x480/60p, 720x576/50p) which are based on ITU BT.601 video format to SD interlaced which is based on ITU BT.656 video format. It also provides RGB Gamma Control to improve display quality of LCD.
