The article reports that according to an announcement from Toshiba, digital television design house TVonics has developed a terrestrial iDTV module using one of digital video broadcast system-on-chip (SoC) processors from Toshiba. Based on an embedded Linux operating system, the TVonics design provides up to 8Mbyte of 8-bit NOR flash and a choice of 16 or 32Mbyte of DDR memory. The TC90403FG Donau SoC also allows the board to offer a number of interface options.
