Allegro DVT, the leading provider of video semiconductor IP and video compliance streams, today announced the release of its AL-D3x0 family of multi-format 8K60 video decoder IPs. This complete family of multi-format video decoder IP cores enables customers to support video decoding at rates of up to 8K60 and beyond in a compact implementation optimized to a wide range of end market applications.
As video applications shift from 4K to 8K, the industry needs power and cost efficient decoding cores to enable rapid rollout of new generation of devices and solutions capable of supporting such super high resolutions.
With the AL-D3x0 family of products, Allegro is able to address this growing demand by providing highly configurable decoding IP core supporting a variety of selectable codecs such as JPEG, H.264, HEVC, VP9 and AV1. Furthermore, Allegro DVT’s unique and scalable architecture approach offers the best trade-off between silicon size and power consumption and keeps the operating frequency of the resulting 8K solutions at a reasonable level to allow physical implementations in mainstream and cost efficient process node technologies.
Nouar Hamze, CEO of Allegro DVT commented “The D3x0 family of dynamic video decoder IP cores is the culmination of both engineering and marketing effort in bringing together the requirements of vastly different applications and generating solutions that are optimal in terms of power, performance and area for our end customers.” He added “The flexibility of Allegro’s architecture has allowed us to meet the needs of 8K60 decoding requirements across multiple formats and is extendible beyond 8K for evolving 16K and 120fps applications.”
