Japanese semiconductor company Altima Corp. has recently unveiled a new development kit for the evaluation and design of Altera mid-range Arria V GX FPGA devices. The kit is aimed at designers of broadcast and other video processing and is slated to be available for purchase by mid-June 2013.

The development kit features powerful processing through the adoption of TSMC's 28nm LP process, and flexibility with ALTERA Arria V GX FPGA. It is also outfitted with a high-speed, large density external memory, invaluable for intensive video processing. It is implemented with a platform containing various interfaces commonly used in broadcasting equipment such as SD-SDI / HD-SDI / 3G-SDI and SATA.

Lately in the broadcasting equipment market, there is a growing need to offer high-performance solutions to create next-gen content and content delivery devices. The emergence of digital broadcasting both in Japan and on a global scale necessitates upgrading image quality, scaling up to 4K/8K resolutions, and converging broadcasts with other communication technologies.

Using this development kit, users will be able to incorporate various interfaces as well as perform an assortment of processing tasks on 4K/8K resolution and uncompressed video transmissions. This development kit can reduce not only time-to-market, but by building a platform that tailors specs for different destinations, the component cost of the final product is also reduced.

In addition, our development kit contains high-performance analogue ICs from Linear Technology Corp., and clock and timing ICs from IDT Inc., which work in concert with ALTERA's FPGA to provide a comprehensive technological and business solution to the customers.
