AL460A HD FIFO Modules,
Here and Now!
AverLogic Development Tools for AL460 HD FIFO - 4.8 Gbps Module
boards with HSMC interface for Altera’s Cyclone III FPGA Starter kit
- Plus HD Visual Digitizer Reference Design
(Taipei, May 5th,
2010) AverLogic Technology Corporation, professional Audio/Video
Solutions provider, introduces the highly anticipated AL460A
HD-FIFO Modules. These modules are used to facilitate
development of products using the AL460A HD-FIFO IC chips, which are
used in HD Video applications as important memory
buffering technology. These modules are also used to validate and
benchmark the AL460A chip functionality and performance.
These modules allow a
maximum 4.8 Gbps data throughput and are designed with
Dual Embedded AL460A-7-PBF (or AL460A-13-PBF) chips to
demonstrate the full potential of HD-FIFO technology. Dual chips,
working in parallel, can turn over very dense HD Video data
efficiently by expanding the bus width to 32-bits, while
running at a maximum clock rate of 150 MHz. Control signals
and data bus signals on the module are clearly demarcated on two
50-pin connectors; one connector is reserved for write controls and
the input data bus; the other connector is for read controls and the
output data bus.
The AL460A IC chips are
designed with a straightforward bus interface, reducing
implementation and debugging efforts, and helping customers
develop faster and more efficiently. This board is especially
designed and optimized to be easily integrated as an add-on module
on existing systems, significantly reducing interface engineering
issues commonly found in retrofit efforts. All of these advantages
allow designers the luxury of being able to focus on core product
functionality and quality. In short, customers benefit from
simplification of design, reduction in development time,
savings on development costs, and hastening of time-to-market.
HD-FIFO Module interface for Altera’s Cyclone III FPGA Starter Kit
An HSMC Adaptor board
with a standard HSMC interface can be connected to the AL460A module
via the two 50-pin connectors; this Adaptor Board can then be
attached directly to an Altera Cyclone III FPGA development board,
one of the most popular tools available for validating and
benchmarking chipsets. Find out more about the Altera Cyclone
III FPGA starter kit by visiting the
Altera web site for details.
