"The super low latency and H.264 performance, combined with the completeness of the WW20BACM and WW20BADM micro-mezzanine modules bring exceptional value to our customers," said Kishan Jainandunsing, VP Marketing at W&W Communications. "Finally, OEMs have an off-the-shelf solution that enables them to effortlessly implement innovative, truly real-time H.264 HD video applications, while simultaneously gaining significant time-to-market."
The following features are the main highlights of the WW20BACM encoder and WW20BADM decoder modules:
-- H.264 video encode/decode -- Up to 1080p30 support, including 720p60 -- Super Low Latency Technology for sub frame-rate encode-decode latencies -- 16-bit BT.709 video data I/O -- Dolby® Digital Stereo® or PCM audio encode/decode -- Up to 192KHz audio sample rates -- I2S and analog stereo line-in audio I/O -- 8-bit MPEG-2 Transport Stream I/O with DVB support -- SPI and UART host interfaces -- 100mm x 55mm x 5mm micro-mezzanine form factor
Designing carrier boards for the WW20BACM and WW20BADM modules is straightforward. The modules come with industry standard signal interfaces for the video, audio and TS I/O. The 16-bit video data interfaces can be directly connected to off-the-shelf HD-SDI, HDMI or Component Video ADCs and DACs. The 8-bit TS interfaces can be directly connected to off-the-shelf DVB-ASI or DVB-SPI transceivers.
The first WW20BACM and WW20BADM modules and comprehensive development kits are scheduled for sampling in May 2008. Mass production of the modules is scheduled in June 2008. Customers should contact Email Contact for updates on availability and pricing.
