eASIC introduced two new lower power device options for their eASIC Nextreme Family. The NX750LP and NX750 Nextreme devices are now available with operating voltage down to 1.0V thereby enabling designers to achieve up to 40% lower power consumption. The new 1.0V device options are optimized for applications that require low cost and low power such as smart meters, portable projectors, toys, and handheld medical devices.
Aptina and eASIC teamed on a H.264 High Definition (HD) reference design that is capable of supporting up to 720p/30fps rates. The eDVR92-based H.264 HD reference design is aimed at enabling and simplifying the development for a new class of low-cost HD applications and making low-cost HD solutions available for the masses. It is ideal for low-cost HD camcorders, baby monitors, public transportation, wireless surveillance, medical, and industrial/automotive vision systems. The eDVR92-based H.264 HD reference design is available now from eASIC. Pricing for the eDVR9200 CODEC IC starts at $4.95 in high volume.
