The SiI9135A HDMI Receiver with Enhanced Audio and Deep Colour Outputs is a second-generation High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) v1.3 receiver.
It is software-compatible with the SiI9133 receiver, but adds audio support for DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD. Digital televisions that can display 10- or 12-bit colour depth can now provide the highest quality protected digital audio and video over a single cable. The SiI9135A can receive deep colour video up to 12-bit, 1080p @ 60 Hz. Backward compatibility with the DVI 1.0 specification allows HDMI systems to connect to existing DVI 1.0 hosts, such as HD set-top boxes and PCs. The specialized audio and video processing contained in the receiver can add HDMI capability to earlier-generation consumer electronics. Efficient colour space conversion receives RGB video data and delivers either standard-definition or high-definition YCbCr formats.
The SiI9135A receiver can send and receive up to eight channels of uncompressed digital audio at 192 kHz and 2-channel digital audio up to 192 kHz. Compressed streams are also supported through either the S/PDIF port or over I2S for DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD.
An industry-standard I2S port allows direct connection to low-cost audio DACs at up to 192 kHz. An S/PDIF port supports up to 192 kHz audio. The device supports Super Audio Compact Disc (SACD) and provides Direct Stream Digital (DSD) ports that support 44.1- and 88.2-kHz one-bit audio. Audio down-sampling allows the receiver to share the audio bus with a high-sample-rate audio DAC while down-sampling audio for an attached display that supports only lower rates.
The chip comes pre-programmed with High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) keys. This set of keys simplifies the manufacturing process and lowers costs while providing the highest level of HDCP key security.
Silicon Image HDMI receivers use the latest generation of TMDS core technology. These cores pass all HDMI compliance tests.
