Chips&Media’s WAVE520 is one of the most advanced hardware video codec IP core supporting next generation High Efficiency Video Coding(HEVC) standard, also known as H.265.
WAVE520 is Chips&Media’s 2nd generation video IP, which achieves the best encoding quality at high resolution and frame rate - 4K(3840x2160) 60fps or similar. The required clock frequency for WAVE520 is significantly low, that 380MHz is necessary for decoding, and 500MHz is for encoding.
For simultaneous decoding and encoding of 4K resolution, 30fps can be achieved with single IP core.
In addition to its superior high resolution(4K) capabilities, WAVE520 also provides maximum bandwidth efficiency and exceptionally low power consumption, which are today’s most demanding requirements across all connected devices. With CFrameTM embedded frame buffer compression technology, memory access bandwidth reduction of 50~70% can be achieved. WAVE520 is suitable for application across various industry segments including ultra high definition televisions(UHD TVs), UHD camcorders, VR·ARs, drones, automotives, set-top boxes, smartphones, tablets and any other applications or devices with super high resolution.
