Back during the summer, I went to see several 3D movies and they looked cool. I am waiting anxiously until I can get 3D content in my home. The price needs to come down before many of us will go 3D though.




NXP has announced its new PNX5130 single-chip solution for 3DTV, FRC, and local dimming. The chip is billed as a cheap coprocessor that will enable cost effective post processing of 3D effects on TVs in the living room.


The chip supports spatial 3D, temporal 3D, and 3D with depth formats. It also supports two types of 3D technology including frame interleave and line interleave. The former uses active glasses and the latter uses passive glasses.
