The chip incorporates a TV controller and encoder and a stereo audio DAC output to allow TV game products to connect directly to TV sets via audio/video cable.
DMC will supply the chip to its several contracted customers for their making in mainland China integrated all-in-one game-pads for worldwide markets this Christmas.
