January 4, 2017 -- A major Chinese IP/IC fabless design company has successfully taped out the SingMai PT51 aCVi video decoder.
Many applications, including vehicle cameras, subsea inspection, security/CCTV, pipeline inspection and remote imaging require video to be transmitted across long lengths of coaxial or twisted pair cable. aCVi is a trademarked solution to this problem, supporting all HD video standards.
Unlike other solutions, aCVi guarantees the full SMPTE luma bandwidth at distances of >300m and automatically compensates for cable length with no requirement for any user setup or calibration. aCVi suffers from no sudden digital cutoff, and distances of over 700m are possible with some signal degradation.
For convenience aCVi IP cores and modules are also compatible with other legacy standards, offering high quality decoding of NTSC, PAL and 960H, as well as other analogue HD transmission formats.
The PT51 decoder, and its companion PT55 encoder, are compact, affordable and easy to implement IP cores that interface easily to camera ISPs, SDI/HD-SDI and HDMI interfaces.
aCVi can also embed data in the video stream, allowing bidirectional data to be sent to/from transmitter and receiver for uses such as remote camera control or transmitting sensor data without the need to utilise additional cables.
aCVi is fully supported by SingMai, with aCVi video test pattern generators and waveform monitors available, as well as evaluation platforms for verification, validation and installation.
