Chips&Media

Korea

Chips&Media (C&M) is the total video hardware IP provider, specializing in video codec, a deep learning-based computer vision, and ISP. C&M’s IPs are known for low power usage, high-performance, small-size, cost-efficient, reliability with countless market references.

 

A high-performance video codec WAVE series supports the latest video compression standards to encode/decode videos up to [email protected] and [email protected] real-time. Moreover, the WAVE series supports additional functions such as error concealment, ROI, smart background, rate control, and low latency for customer convenience. C&M  adds its solely developed proprietary compression technology, CFrame, an HW block consisting of compressor and decompressor embedded in the IP core. A deep learning-based super-resolution technology is to upscale low-resolution images to high-resolution. It uses datasets and trained models to reconstruct to a higher resolution image up to 8K60fps. Using Chips&Media’s IP cores, partners/customers can significantly shorten the semiconductor development schedule and implement the most elevated performance video processing functions.

IP Cores

Effective and Efficient Video Codec HW IPs

Chips&Media provides an extensive catalog of advanced video codec cores to support the media formats with an optimized competitive PPA (power, performance, area), including AV1, H.265/HEVC, H.264/AVC, VP9, AVS2, and other legacy codecs with resolution up to 4K120fps, [email protected] in real-time. C&M’s video codec IPs can be embedded in consumer electronic devices like smartphones, multimedia players, desktop/laptop PCs, digital TVs, set-top boxes, surveillance cameras, automotive infotainment, AR/VR, and much more. A high-performance video codec WAVE series, developed exclusively by C&M, supports the latest video compression standards to encode/decode videos. The WAVE series supports additional functions such as error concealment, ROI, smart background, rate control, and low latency for customer convenience.

Revolutionary Super-Resolution Technology

Chips&Media delivers the latest innovative, fully hardwired deep learning-based inference super-resolution HW IP that reconstructs to a higher-resolution image or sequence from the observed low-resolution in real-time. The super-resolution HW IP is called c.WAVE120 performs the upscaling tasks by utilizing a massive set of training datasets. The c.WAVE120’s neural network was designed and trained to upscale video horizontally and vertically to achieve improved resolution results. The deep learning-based super-resolution IP core, c.WAVE120, is capable of processing [email protected] 550MHz operating frequency. This technology can be applied to various customer application product markets such as consumer electronics, automotive, home entertainment, IoT, surveillance cameras, and much more.
