eDV9200 CODEC Delivers Real-Time, Streaming HD Performance SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- May 11, 2009
-- eASIC Corporation, a provider of NEW ASIC devices, today announced the eDV9200, a low cost single chip high-definition H.264 CODEC. Requiring only a few external components, the highly integrated eDV9200 dramatically lowers the cost of entry into the high definition video market, enabling a new class of low-cost applications to fully leverage the benefits offered by HD technology. This includes applications such as toys, baby monitors, public transportation, wireless video surveillance and wireless webcams.
At the heart of the eDV9200 is fully programmable ITU-T compliant high definition baseline H.264 CODEC that supports all resolutions including 1080p, 720p, VGA, HVGA, QVGA, CIF and QCIF and variable bit rate (VBR) or constant bit rate (CBR) capabilities. Support for a wide-range of resolutions enables ODMs to develop many products for multiple market segments using the same device and bill of materials, thereby significantly reducing new product development costs.
The eDV9200 captures streaming data directly from a CMOS sensor, compresses it, and transfers it to a host system, or to a variety of storage devices. The device interfaces directly to
high-speed DDR/mobile DDR/DDR2 memories, TFT LCD displays and provides a number of user interfaces including USB2.0, UART, SD card, SPI, I2C and parallel port. A highly-optimized 32-bit RISC processor provides complete and efficient system control and on screen display (OSD) capability.
“Our consumer video customers are looking to add innovative features while aggressively striving to stay competitive in this global economic downturn. The eDV9200 allows high-volume ODMs to quickly and inexpensively develop new products that can offer HD capability at a low system cost,” said Jasbinder Bhoot, Vice President of Worldwide Marketing at eASIC. “eDV9200 is another solid testament to our Nextreme NEW ASIC technology which serves as the underlying platform to enable rapid development of application specific standard products (ASSPs).”
