eASIC eDV9200 High Definition CODEC

eASIC launched the eDV9200 low cost, single chip high-definition H.264 CODEC. The eDV9200 requires only a few external components and lowers the cost of entry into the high definition video market. The codec is ideal for toys, baby monitors, public transportation, wireless video surveillance, and wireless webcams. The eDV9200 chip is housed in a 208 ball BGA package. High volume pricing starts at $4.99 each.

The eDV9200 features a fully programmable ITU-T compliant high definition baseline H.264 CODEC that supports all resolutions — including 1080p, 720p, VGA, HVGA, QVGA, CIF and QCIF and variable bit rate (VBR) or constant bit rate (CBR) capabilities.

The eDV9200 captures streaming data directly from a CMOS sensor, compresses it, and transfers it to a host system, or to a variety of storage devices. The device interfaces directly to high-speed DDR/mobile DDR/DDR2 memories, TFT LCD displays and provides a number of user interfaces including USB2.0, UART, SD card, SPI, I2C and parallel port. A highly-optimized 32-bit RISC processor provides complete and efficient system control and on screen display (OSD) capability.
