By CBR Staff Writer

Electronic Design Automation firm Synopsys has released DesignWare HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) 1.4 PHY IP in 28-nanometer (nm) processes for multiple foundries.

The DesignWare HDMI 1.4 PHY IP enable design teams to integrate the HDMI interface into their chips with less risk and effort, said the company.

The new tool is a tested suite of HDMI TX (transmitter) and RX (receiver) digital controllers and high-speed PHY IP.

With the configurable TX and RX controllers, designers can optimise the IP for their specific area, power and frequency requirements and the mixed-signal PHY hard macro offers an analogue front-end supporting category 2-certified HDMI cables up to 20 foot in length.

Synopsys’ HDMI IP supports major 3D and 4K resolution modes with a bandwidth of up to 3.4 Gbps to keep pace with the 3D technology and achieve audio and video quality.

Synopsys IP and systems Marketing vice-president John Koeter said Synopsys has worked closely with leading foundries to help their mutual customers meet their evolving multimedia requirements.

"Availability of our DesignWare HDMI 1.4 IP on multiple 28-nanometer processes ensures designers have access to the high-quality, silicon-proven IP they need to quickly incorporate the latest audio and video functionality into their next-generation mobile and digital home devices," said Koeter.
