SmartDV Technologies Delivers New Design IP for Video, Imaging, Entertainment System Protocols

Fast, Configurable Compliant Design IP Enables Users to Get to Market Quickly, Confidently


SAN JOSE, CALIF. – June 4, 2020 SmartDV Technologies, the Proven and Trusted choice for Design and Verification Intellectual Property (IP), today delivered a series of video, imaging and entertainment system Design IP compliant with a variety of standard protocol specifications.

The new Design IP is available for:

  • V-by-One, a high-speed serial video interface for HDTV
  • VESA DSC (Display Stream Compression), a video compression and decompression standard
  • HDCP 2.3 (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) used to encrypt and authenticate digital signals for copyright-protected media, including movies, TV shows and audio
  • HDMI CEC (Consumer Electronics Control), a feature of HDMI that allows devices connected to HDMI to be controlled by just one remote
  • HDMI eARC (enhanced Audio Return Channel), an HDMI feature that enables high-quality digital audio to be sent back from the TV via HDMI
  • CXP (CoaXpress), a high-speed imaging standard for serial transmission of video and still images
  • SLVS-EC (Scalable Low Voltage Signaling with Embedded Clock), a high-speed serial interface scheme for image data transmission

“Our video, imaging and entertainment system protocol Design IP is part of our growing and extensive portfolio in support of our users,” states Deepak Kumar Tala, SmartDV’s managing director. “Each Design IP can be quickly customized to meet users’ needs and has our commitment to high quality. That’s why SmartDV is Proven and Trusted at more than 100 global organizations, including seven out of the top 10 semiconductor companies.”

As with all SmartDV’s Design IP solutions, its newest additions to video, imaging and entertainment system protocol Design IP enables users to get to market quickly and confidently.
