Description

Used in over 600 million devices, HDMI represents the most common interconnect standard for high definition video and audio.

The Bitec HDMI 2.0b IP Core enables HDMI interconnectivity without the need for external HDMI ASSP devices. Supporting pixel clocks to 600Mhz, the IP core allows ULTRA HD designs while using minimal device i/o pin resources. The core can operate in 1-, 2- or 4-symbols per clock allowing for high pixel rates on low end FPGA devices.

Both Video and Audio is supported with added low-level access to Auxiliary data packets. This feature allows low level development and testing of HDMI interfaces. It also allows a more flexible interface to the latest 3D and 4K video formats and control packets.

The core provides convenient interfacing to the Altera VIP Suite for rapid development of image processing systems. It is also designed to operate in parallel with the Bitec DP 1.2 IP Core to achieve DP++ compatibility.

The IP Core has been interoperability tested at various CEA HDMI Plugfest events.

* Not recommended for 6G operation.

The HDMI core supports both sink and source. The sink video, audio and auxiliary data ports are designed to allow direct pass through of the HDMI data.

The core can operate in either 1-, 2- or 4-symbol/pixel per clock allowing low cost devices to handle video pixel clocks up to 600Mhz (UHD). The core interfaces directly to the FPGA device transceiver input and outputs. With a rich set of parameterizations, the core can be balanced for feature support and device utilisation.

When used in parallel with the Bitec DP 1.2 IP core, DP++ based designs are achieved.DP++ allows a single DP 1.2 interface connector to support both DP and HDMI connectivity.

Evaluation Platform

An evaluation platform is available based on the Arria V or Arria 10 Starter Kit using the Bitec HDMI Daughter card or Bitec FMC HDMI Daughter card respectively. A reference design is available which demonstrates the loop-through of video from source to sink.

Optional HDCP

 

An optional HDCP encryption and decryption feature is available using the Bitec HDCP IP Core. The HDCP feature enables designs to operate with consumer and pro-AV equipment which need to transfer copyright video material.
