New Intellectual Property Core Leverages Key Capabilities of Cost-Effective Spartan-3 Platform
The solution comprises unique human perception-based pixel-by-pixel dynamic range compression, fine pixel/edge preservation and color correction algorithms to result in superior picture quality as viewed by the end customer. The IP Core leverages the distinctive embedded multipliers and substantial Block Ram (BRAM) resources of the Spartan-3 family of FPGAs, essential to enable many high end video processing algorithms. The FPGA and IP solution complements existing video processing ASSPs in the marketplace to provide best in class display picture quality.
"The Iridix v6 core provides breakthrough video enhancement algorithms to substantially improve the video quality of emerging 1080p HD displays," said Michael Tusch, CEO at Apical. "The flexibility and performance of the cost effective Spartan-3 family provided the perfect platform to enable high volume high quality high definition displays."
"Xilinx is well positioned to meet evolving display manufacturer requirements to deliver unique, highly competitive display models under constant pressure, while meeting stringent time-to-market requirements," said Christophe Chene, senior marketing director of the General Products Division at Xilinx.
