SOC provides an H.264 4K encoder IP Core for Xilinx and Intel FPGAs. The encoder supports up to 4K/60 (4096 × 2160 @60fps) resolution. Parameters are configurable at run-time through API registers.
There are two slimmed-down versions available. The I+P-Frame Slim version uses 50% of standard logic resources, I-Frame-Only Slim version uses only 30% of the standard logic resources. Slim versions are suitable for resource-constrained, low-density FPGAS, if higher bitrates are acceptable.
|Resolution/FPS:||Up to 4K(4096 × 2160p) at 60fps|
|Frame Types:||I, P or B|
|Chroma:||4:2:0 or 4:2:2|
|Precision:||8 or 10 bit|
|Output:||Elementary or Transport Stream|
|Entropy Coding:||CAVLC or CABAC|
|Note:||Resource values are for 30fps. Double the resource values for 60fps.|
The H.264 4K Video Encoder IP Core can be evaluated on SOC's Evaluation Kits. Evaluation kits include a carrier-board with all the ports and extensions needed for most video-based applications. The module and carrier board firmware are reconfigurable, and we can license board files if needed.
