NTT Electronics to show VASA LSI-based HD encoding, decoding

July 22, 2004

The new NTT Electronics VASA LSI, which provides a single-chip HDTV 4:2:2 encoding and decoding solution, will be demonstrated at IBC2004 using the SC10KE and SC10KD HDTV video encoder and decoder modules.

With integrated double datarate memory (DDR), these modules greatly reduce design time, and eliminates having to lay down 1008pin ball grid array (BGA) packages.

Low power consumption and low latency are two of the main features of this single-chip VASA architecture, with an ability to work in full spec 422P@HL and MP@HL, and reduced resolution MP@H-14L environments while demonstrating high bit rates up to 300Mb/s.

The VASA chip processes high-quality MPEG-2 video in 1080i, 1080-24P, 720P, 480i and 480P formats with a power consumption of less than 3W. Typical encoder delay (I frame) is 66ms.
