Support for new high definition video format enables development of next generation TVs
SAN JOSE, Calif., 06 Sep 2013 -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), a leader in global electronic design innovation, today announced the availability of the industry’s first verification IP (VIP) supporting the new HDMI 2.0 specification. This VIP enables designers to quickly and thoroughly verify that their systems-on-chip (SoCs) conform to the HDMI 2.0 specification, accelerating ramp-up to mass production. The Cadence VIP for HDMI 2.0 supports all major logic simulators, verification languages, and methodologies including the Universal Verification Methodology (UVM).
“The HDMI 2.0 verification IP provided by Cadence enabled a small verification team to deliver reliable results within very tight schedule constraints. By reducing the effort required to develop a verification solution, our engineers were able to focus on other tasks crucial to project completion,” said Larry Porter, verification manager, Display Products Division STMicroelectronics. “As a result, we were able to create the type of high-quality and reliable design expected by our customers.”
“The introduction of the HDMI 2.0 Specification represents a major milestone for the HDMI Forum,” said Robert Blanchard of Sony Corporation, president of the HDMI Forum. “Our members collaborated closely to take the highly successful HDMI Specification to the next level by expanding audio and video features for consumer electronics applications.”
"HDMI 2.0 promises to deliver a whole new experience to the already discerning video audience,” said Susan Peterson, group director of product marketing for VIP at Cadence. "Our customers now have immediate access to our latest VIP so they can create these exciting new products confidently and get them to store shelves quickly."
