  • H264-BP-E H.264/AVC Baseline HD & ED Video Encoder Core

News CAST’s High Performance H.264 Encoder Available Now in eASIC’s Zero Mask-charge NextremeTM Structured ASICs

Santa Clara, California, March 28 2007

This product is no longer available to license from CAST. Please contact CAST Sales for more info.

p>H264-MCE has been replaced by the H.264-BP-E

eASIC Corporation, a provider of Structured ASIC devices today announced the immediate availability of the H264-MCE multi-channel baseline video encoder core from CAST, Inc. for implementation in Nextreme Structured ASIC devices. This solution is perfect fit for a wide range of video processing applications such as digital video-broadcasting and digital video surveillance equipment.

The CAST H.264 Intellectual Property core operates at 150MHz performance and Nextreme provides the customer with the benefits of no mask charges, no minimum order quantity and a short turnaround time of 3-4 weeks. Using Nextreme, customers gain lower unit cost and achieve 1/10 the power consumption of comparable FPGA solutions.

“eASIC’s Nextreme technology is a great match for our H.264 encoder core," said Hal Barbour, President of CAST. “Together they make advanced video coding practical for more designers, and achievable with less risk and lower cost.”

“To meet the ever-increasing demand for high definition video applications, we have collaborated with CAST, one of our eZ-IP Alliance partners, to provide our customers with a low-cost platform to implement state-of-the-art compression algorithms,” said Jasbinder Bhoot, Senior Marketing Director at eASIC. “Our solution introduces a higher performance and lower power-consumption alternative compared to baseline profile encoders implemented using existing, more expensive approaches such as FPGAs.

Availability

A synthesizable H264/MCE core is available now in VHDL, Verilog or netlist formats. The core is licensable by CAST and the Nextreme devices are offered by eASIC. For pricing information, please contact an eASIC sales representative.

H264-MCE Multi-Channel Baseline H.264/AVC Video Encoder Core

With its ability to process multiple inputs and unusual support for frame sizes up through HDTV at fast transmission rates, the H.264 core is especially effective for multi-camera surveillance systems, video conferencing packages, networked camera situations, and any application with multiple video sources feeding into a single network node where bandwidth is limited.

The core conforms to the Level 4.1 Baseline H.264 specification, and can be configured to support a wide range of popular video resolutions. It can, for example, easily process 720p HDTV in an Nexteme device (1280 x 720 pixel frames, 30 frames per second, running at just 110 MHz). The flexible core can produce output that is either constant bit rate (CBR) for applications with limited bandwidth, or variable bit rate (VBR) for applications processing detailed images in fast-changing scenes. Additional processing details and error checking features ensure video quality ; see the datasheet online for complete information.
