It’s plain sailing with Semtech’s BlueRiver chipset
Semtech Corporation has announced its new BlueRiver audio visual processor (AVP) chipset which provides all the features and functions of the exciting NT1000 and NT2000 FPGA-based offerings.
This includes: matrix-switch like performance over IP, under 0.1 millisecond latency, 4K60 uncompressed image quality, and common API, with key new benefits such as system cost reduction, significant power reduction, AV transceiver functionality, and full integrated USB-HID interface.
The new series will support the growth of the SDVoE ecosystem in a wide range of market applications. It includes three devices: the entry level AVP1000 for AV over IP and matrix switch replacement, the AVP2000 which adds a video processing engine and fibre connectivity, and the AVP2000T which adds bidirectional HDMI capability to all the features of the AVP2000.
Costly FPGA devices are no longer needed and the series is also very energy efficient.
Semtech Signal Integriy Products Group vice president for video products Don Shaver says: “The new BlueRiver AVP chipset enables a new generation of lower cost peripherals and integration directly into end-products, which should drive significant growth of SDVoE-enabled products.”
