Decoder adds TV
capabilities to handset SoCs
Adding to its comprehensive range of software and hardware video technology, Hantro has released a new hardware decoder for ARM Amba based bus SoC designs
The 6130 is H.264/AVC Baseline profile compatible and has been designed specifically to meet the requirements of multimedia streaming and TV applications in mobile handsets. Supporting playback resolutions of QVGA and CIF at up to 30 frames per second, the decoder integrates processing intensive functions into a hardware acceleration module.
Reducing CPU load by a factor of four in a typical operating scenario, Hantro's new decoder provides the performance and power savings that are needed to ensure the success of emergent applications such as mobile TV.
'The demand for TV applications in mobile devices is increasing dramatically and we have developed this product to enable our customers to respond quickly', says Eero Kaikkonen, President and CEO of Hantro.
'By providing a cost effective migration path, the 6130 will act as a natural stepping stone towards our multiformat solutions for our customers'.
