Description

The Philips SAA7146 chip is a no frills multimedia bridge to the PCI bus, which means it has no decoding ability (unlike most competing chip designs) and therefore requiring it to need an external decoder.

Drivers for other operating systems use highly modular designs in order to support the numerous card setups available.

A list of cards using the chip can be found here.
