A mixed-signal SoC for DVD applications is designed in 0.13/spl mu/m 1P 6M CMOS. One DSP, two 32b RISC CPUs, three dedicated processing units, PRML read channel with an analog front end (AFE) and several other subsystems are integrated on the same die. The AFE contains a 5th-order G/sub m/-C filter and over 66dB C/N. The SoC contains 24M transistors in a 64mm/sup 2/ die and consumes 1.5W at 40MS/s which corresponds to 1.5/spl times/ DVD playback.
