Imagination Technologies Launches PowerVR MSVDX HD Video Core

Imagination Technologies today announced the immediate availability of the PowerVR MSVDX HD-video core. PowerVR MSVDX is a multi-standard high definition video decoder core enabling HD-DVD / Blu-ray decode and HD-Broadcast reception.

PowerVR MSVDX supports up to 1080i/1080p and 2048x1024 resolutions and may be configured to support either single streams or up to four multiple streams. The decoder supports the wide range of decode standards including: H.264 (to High Profile), WMV9 (to Main profile), VC1 (to Advanced profile), MPEG-2 (Main profile), MPEG-4 (to Advanced simple profile), DivX (Certified), and JPEG. MSVDX can be configured with any subset of these standards.

According to the press release, PowerVR MSVDX is also suitable for handheld video devices, such as personal media players, where its advanced block and register level clock gating implementation and small silicon area ensure low power consumption. The design has been optimised to further reduce power by enhancing the ratio of the design that can benefit from register level clock gating.

Advanced error recovery is enabled with logic to increase resilience to errors on reception of a corrupted bit-stream. A micro-controller within the stream manager enables high-level error recovery while low-level activity monitors detect and lock up error conditions.

The PowerVR MSVDX design is available as a soft IP macro coded in VHDL with full documentation, Synopsys Design Compiler scripts and VHDL simulation test benches. The core is synthesizable at a minimum of 150 MHz in 0.13 um process.
