Product Description

Chips&Media’s WAVE5 series is one of the most advanced hardware video decoder and Codec IP core which supports the next generation HEVC standard known as H.265, Google's VP9, and Chinese AVS2 with optimized size.

The WAVE5 series is the 2nd generation video IP which is enhanced performance for high-end UHD SoC. It requires only about 380MHz clock frequency to decode 3840x2160 60fps video or 3840x2160 30fps two channel videos.

In addition to its superior 4K 60fps performance, the WAVE5 series also provides maximum bandwidth efficiency and exceptional low power consumption, which are today’s most demanding requirements across all connected devices. It employs frame buffer compression technology named CFrameTM which can save on average 50~70?ndwidth access to memory.

The WAVE5 series is suitable for applications across various industry segments including ultra high-definition televisions(UHDTVs), set-top boxes(STBs), VR·ARs, smartphones, tablets, camcorders, cameras, and any others with super- high resolution.
