Chips&Media Announces New Generation HEVC Video Decoder | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) |

Chips&Media’s WAVE410 HEVC decoder targets an extensive range of high-end devices that are capable of 4K video playback from smartphones to UHDTV/UHD set-top boxes built on state-of-the-art architecture and technologies with high performance and energy efficiency.


So far, software decoding was mainly used when replaying HEVC videos, which is more power-consuming and burdensome to CPUs. WAVE410 is an HEVC decoder core IP that supports 4K (4096x2160) resolution, about four times greater than HD video.


One core IP can replay a series of 4K images at 30 frames per second on the real-time basis. 8 cores bound together, it can play videos up to 8K (8192x4320) images at 60 frames per second. The company reduced the BUS bandwidth to half, enhancing the memory efficiency. 

The industry expected this IP will be included in a chip design and applied to a full-scale production from mid next year.
