Fujitsu – Ultra-low power full high-definition H.264 CODECsOct 31 2008 - Semiconductors [More Semiconductors Articles]
With the introduction of two new devices that encode and decode full high-definition (HD) (1920 dots x 1080 lines) video in H.264 format, Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) has expanded its line-up of H.264 CODECs
The first of the two products to be launched, the ultra-low power MB86H55, features power consumption of only 500mW during full HD encoding including the built-in memory, an industry-leading level for low power consumption. In addition, the upcoming MB86H56 will offer processing of full HD video at 60 frames-per-second (progressive), to improve picture quality even further.
The two new products have built-in memory to offer a small package size of 15mm x 15mm, making them ideal to record, play and transmit superior picture quality HD video on portable devices such as digital camcorders, as well as on home networked appliances, commercial broadcast equipment, and security cameras, says the company.More news from Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe
