    • 3G triple-rate auto detect, auto switch on Stratix® II GX FPGAs and now on Arria(TM) GX FPGAs
    • Daughtercard and reference design with National Semiconductor’s 3 Gbps multi-rate SDI SerDes and Altera® Cyclone(R) III and Stratix III FPGAs
    • Industry-leading jitter performance characterized over process, voltage and temperature
  • 1080p Video Framework
    • Start with a working 1080p hardware design and customize for your application
    • 2-channel 1080p reference design with multi-tap scaling
  • 10-Gbit test chip — The most advanced FPGA transceiver technology showing 10-Gbit operation
  • Enhanced sample rate converter, which adds support for 192 kHz, while retaining broadcast audio quality and delivering greater than 50 percent cost savings over ASSP offerings
  • 10 Gigabit Ethernet video networking framework for transporting packetized video

3rd Party Demonstrations

  • Algolith’s high-quality motion adaptive deinterlacer integrated into Altera’s 1080p video framework
  • Commsonic modulation and demodulation with Cyclone III low-cost FPGAs — ATSC, J.83 A/B/C, ATSC, DVB-C/T/H, DVB-S/SNG/S2
  • 4i2i’s MPEG2 and H.264 4:2:2 CODECs — FPGA implementation eliminates multiple ASSPs by combining different standards into a single FPGA. Stratix III FPGA’s 25 percent performance advantage leads to most cost-effective FPGA solution available
