CX25838 :8-Channel Audio/Video Decoder for Video Surveillance Systems
The CX25838 eight-channel audio/video decoder was designed for surveillance applications. The CX25838 contains eight high quality NTSC/PAL video decoders with 10-bit A/Ds and 5-line comb filtering, to generate the highest quality digital video output with the lowest possible noise. This creates not only the best image quality for viewing, but enables lower bitrates for compression devices using the output of the CX25838.
The video decoders within the CX25838 are optimized to lock to inputs with low signal levels as well as line-locked cameras, both of which are common in surveillance systems. Each video decoder may be scaled independently and the CX25838 supports BT.656 as well as a variety of other interleaved digital video output formats.
The CX25838 also contains eight high-quality mono audio A/Ds with I2S outputs.
The CX25838 supports byte, line, or frame-interleaved digital video outputs at 27, 54, or 108 MHz. Byte and line interleaved outputs are supported entirely within the CX25838. Frame-interleaved outputs require that the CX25838 interface with external DDR2 memory. The CX25838 supports I2S and multiplexed I2S audio outputs.
There are two variants of the CX25838 offered — one with the external DDR2 interface, and one without the interface. When equipped with DDR2, the CX25838 supports frame-interleaved video outputs, as well as a 2x2 CIF tiling mode, in which four CIF images are tiled into a single D1 stream.
For systems that require resolutions of half-D1 or lower, two CX25838 devices may be cascaded together to share external memory and CODEC interfaces. The CX25838 includes programmable motion detection logic, which can trigger flags over GPIO pins when motion is detected on incoming analog video streams.
The CX25838 contains 48 GPIO pins, which maximize flexibility and allow customization to a variety of applications and designs. The I2C interface and motion detection flags are supported via GPIOs.

Multi-Channel Audio/Video Decoder Evaluation Kit Evaluation Kit based on Conexant’s CX25838 Multi-Channel Audio/Video Decoder, CX25874 Video Encoder with Composite/S-Video/Component Output, and CX20709 Audio Codec devices.
The stand-alone evaluation kit is designed to showcase the capabilities of Conexant’s CX25838 devices. Each CX25838 device integrates eight high-quality video decoders with eight audio A/Ds, and supports byte and line-interleaved digital video outputs. The CX25838-1x contains a DDR2 interface and supports frame-interleaved outputs as well as 2x2 CIF resolution tiling. Frame-interleaved outputs provide key benefits and additional flexibility to many DVR systems by eliminating glue-logic and lowering codec processing requirements.
The CX25838-2x (without DDR2 interface) may be cascaded with the CX25838-1x to allow frame-interleaved output of up to 16 video channels. High-speed headers on the board are designed to allow uncompressed video and audio output from the CX25838 devices to easily cable over to H.264 development platforms. The CX25838 contains enhancements specific to surveillance applications, such as programmable motion detection, expanded line-locked camera frequency ranges, and enhanced low-level input locking capabilities.
The CX25838 Evaluation Kit also includes Conexant’s CX25874 video encoders, which accept BT.656 data from the CX25838 multi-channel decoders and generate analog composite, S-Video, and component outputs. Additionally, Conexant’s CX20709 device accepts digital audio data from the CX25838 and converts it to analog output.
The evaluation kit is controlled with a user-friendly PC application, which interfaces to the board via USB. In addition to controlling the board, the USB interface allows bridging of video data from the CX25838 to the PC, for evaluation of pure digital video.
The CX25838 Evaluation Kit provides DVR manufacturers with a simple, yet powerful evaluation and development platform for systems based on the device. The CX25838 is the world’s only eight-channel integrated audio/video decoder for surveillance DVR applications.
