'[OT] MPEG help -Reply'
1998\02\15@200819 by ang (Chee Foon Tiang)

I've done a engineering demo set using one uC to control CD servo &
and the CL484 (MPEG decoder) for VideoCD ver 2.0 implementation.

But the uC that I used (H8/3726) has 48K of EPROM and able to
drive VFD directly which probably the PIC can't handle.

However, most implementation in the market uses a 2 uC solution with
a dedicated 8051 to control the MPEG decoder + VFD driver IC + IR +
All these while communicating with the CD mechanism through a software
protocol based on Philips DSA (Data, Strobe, Ack) or some
other proprietary protocol.
The other uC is dedicated to controlling  the CD mechanism (servo +

The CL484 uses a parallel interface and CL680 does it serially.
I won't bother with the CL484 if I were you, as it will be obsolete
We are in the middle of migration to the CL680 as well.

If you need any help, please e-mail me.

Are there any CD player/MPEG gurus out there ?
I need some help in understanding how/why the decoder/dsp talks to
We are using the C-Cube CL484 & CL680 devices to decode MPEG
Sorry for the OT nature but our pcb uses a PIC on as well !
Thanks in advance...
