AL-D200 Decoder IP

4K/UHD 4:2:0/4:2:2 Multi-Format Decoder IP


Allegro DVT’s AL-D200 is a silicon proven, multi-format, multi-stream real-time hardware decoder IP core, optimized for 4K@30fps resolution. The AL-D200 decoder IP has an optional support for 4:2:2 color decoding allowing support for professional video applications such as video contribution and transcoding. In addition, its unique scalable architecture offers a highly configurable and flexible design, meeting the requirements for small area and high performance of applications such as:

  • Video contribution and transcoding
  • Set-Top Boxes, Digital TV
  • Smartphones and tablets
  • Automotive
  • Camera SoCs

Key advantages

  • Optimized core for 3840x2160p@30fps resolution, scalable up to 4K@120fps and 8K@30fps
  • Hardware based implementation for very low gate counts and power consumption
  • Low memory bandwidth requirements
  • Support of low latency decoding
  • Support of frame buffer compression and decompression
