October 4, 2013 -- DINI Group announces the availability of a new Xilinx Kintex-7 based, FPGA board with dual HDMI inputs, HDMI outputs, Gigabit Ethernet, dual SATA and USB3.0. DINI Group’s DINAR1_HDMI_ETH_USB board puts the power of FPGA technology to the advantage of SOC development and high definition video and audio processing in an easy to use platform that can be used as daughter card on all DINI boards equipped with DINAR1 interface or standalone.
Frame buffering via a DDR3 memory is provided, along with dual RS232 and ARM JTAG headers for SOC debugging. This HDMI ASIC prototyping peripheral can handle HDTV formats up to 1080p 36-bit deep along with color display resolutions up to UXGA (1600 x 1200 at 60 Hz).
“This new Kintex-7 board adds SOC prototyping and high definition video/audio processing to our line of ASIC Prototyping Platforms.” says Mike Dini, president, “There is everything needed to test and process High Definition Video and Audio (up to 7.1 channels) for SOC development, entertainment and scientific purposes. Software and firmware developers will appreciate the productivity gains that come with this low cost, add-on or stand-alone development platform.”
DINI Group was established in 1995 as a consulting company. While developing ASICs for various clients they saw the need for cost effective logic emulation platforms and developed several of them. They are now the market leader in FPGA-based ASIC prototyping hardware and supply boards with a capacity of more than 130 million gates. From their corporate campus in La Jolla, California, DINI Group employees have supplied over ten billion ASIC gates.
