Mentor Graphics introduced hardware and software solutions to accelerate the verification of High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) version 2.0 products. Mentor verification solutions enable designers to test the HDMI 2.0 devices integrated on their System-on-Chip (SoC) designs, and develop and stress-test their software and hardware with billions of verification cycles before silicon is available. The solutions are available for deployment at customer sites effective immediately.
Synopsys introduced the DesignWare High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) 1.4 transmitter (Tx) and receiver (Rx) digital controllers and PHY IP solutions that are compliant to the standard specification. The DesignWare HDMI IP enables designers to quickly incorporate differentiated functionality into digital TV (DTV) and home theater applications with less risk and improved time-to-market. The DesignWare HDMI 1.4 Tx and Rx IP solution is available now. The HDMI PHY IP is available in more than 10 process technologies from 90-nanometers (nm) to 40-nm, and from leading foundries.
