eInfochips Introduces DVPB-HD for TI’s DaVinci Technology

eInfochips, a provider of chip and product design services, has introduced its Digital Video Processing Board - High-Definition, DVPB-HD, for Texas Instruments's DaVinci technology.

According to eInfochips, the DVPB-HD features Texas Instruments's (TI's) TMS320DM6467 digital media processor based on DaVinci technology and provides all commonly used video system peripheral interfaces. This allows original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and original design manufacturers (ODMs) to go-to-market by reducing their hardware design cycle.

The board is targeted at various applications that need video encoding and/or decoding capabilities, such as video conferencing, surveillance, video broadcast, video transcoding, set-top-box, DVR/PVR, digital media adaptor and medical imaging devices, said eInfochips.

eInfochips has said that DVPB-HD is a small foot-print board that is bundled with a software package consisting board support package (BSP), software development kit (SDK) framework and demo application, allowing systems and application engineers to develop and prototype their application. DVPB-HD is also bundled with a boot-loader and software utilities allowing customers to develop or re-target their applications to the DVPB-HD.

The boards will be available for volume shipping by second week of October 2008 from eInfochips. The board pricing starts at $1,095 for low volumes.

Upendra Patel, chief technology officer at eInfochips, said: "The digital video capabilities and performance of TI's digital media processors based on DaVinci technology coupled with our DVPB-HD make it comprehensive and flexible solution for various HD video applications."
