eASIC Announces eDiVeo Family of Low-Cost Single-Chip Audio and Video Codecs

SANTA CLARA, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—July 17, 2008— eASIC Corporation ( www.eASIC.com), a provider of zero mask-charge ASIC devices, today announced the immediate availability of the eDV9100, the first member of its eDiVeo family of low-cost single chip audio and video codecs. The eDV9100 supports MPEG-4 video providing encoding or decoding for full motion VGA. The versatile eDV9100 is ideal for System OEMs, ODMs and Application Specific Standard Product designers that want to rapidly introduce a wide variety of video solutions such as low cost digital camcorders, wearable and portable video surveillance, taxi-cameras, rear-view automotive cameras, and hands free cameras. The eDV9100 is the first device in eASICs eDiVeo portfolio, which will also include high-definition H.264 devices.

The eDV9100 is optimized for JPEG and MPEG-4 image processing, and includes a 32-bit RISC processor for system control and OSD. The eDV9100 interfaces directly to CMOS sensors up to 5M pixels, memory cards and TFT/STN LCD displays. The eDV9100 is implemented using eASICs proven Nextreme zero mask-charge ASIC architecture. This allows designers to rapidly integrate custom features and quickly create derivative devices to meet changing market requirements.

eASICs unique technology continues to deliver on the promise of affordable mass silicon customization. The eDV9100 fills a market requirement for low cost video processing solutions, allowing designers to efficiently develop end products that require little design effort and hence a quick path to revenue generation, said Ronnie Vasishta, President and CEO of eASIC. Designers can also add their own custom features cost effectively, with no mask charges, and receive their new device in a few weeks. This platform is a first of its kind in that it is targeted at OEMs, ODMs and ASSP companies.

eDiVeo is an ideal platform for semiconductor vendors that wish to rapidly proliferate a range of re-branded custom video solutions for the ever-increasing number of MPEG and H.264 video applications. Leading market research firms forecast global MPEG IC demand will reach 1.6 billion units annually by 2011.

Full Reference Design, Device Availability and Pricing

The eDV9100 is available now in a 208 ball BGA package. High volume pricing starts at $4.95 each. Pricing includes license to use device firmware and drivers.

A digital video camcorder reference design (eDVR91) is also available. The eDVR91 is available for $299.

Documentation and data sheet for the eDV9100 and the eDVR91 reference design can be accessed at: http://www.easic.com.

The H.264 high-definition members of the eDiVeo family will sample in 3Q08, and be available in production quantities in 4Q08.
