MACOM chipset meets Altera FPGAs

M/A-COM Technology Solutions has announced that Altera’s Stratix V field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are interoperable with MACOM’s 12G-SDI chipset, enabling systems designers to create offerings that support 4k60p video.

The solution supports the proposed SMTPE 12G-SDI standard for increasing video throughput by a factor of four over previous connectivity standards and enables processing on a single card.

“As the video industry evolves to UHD, MACOM’s 12G-SDI chipset enables 4k60p video using the lowest power, highest density and most economical solution available. By collaborating with Altera we can now offer customers the ability to efficiently process Ultra-high-definition video with a single link connection rather than multiple 3G-SDI connections,” said Ryan Latchman, Vice President of Strategic Marketing and Applications Engineering, High Performance Analog, MACOM. “We are proud to deliver solutions that enable the broadcast industry to migrate to the next generation of broadcast video.”

“Providing broadcast customers with FPGAs that can support the proposed 12G-SDI standard for 4k60p connectivity is a key focus for Altera,” said Umar Mughal, Director, Broadcast Business Unit, Altera. “In showcasing our interoperability with the MACOM 12G-SDI chipset, we are helping systems designers get early access to an end-to-end solution that saves board space and money as they design their next-generation broadcast products.”

Altera Stratix FPGA and SoCs enable high-performance, state-of-the-art products to market faster with lower risk and higher productivity.

With Arria 10 FPGAs and SoCs, system designers achieve the highest performance at 20 nm offering a one speed-grade performance advantage over competing devices. Along with MACOM’s 12G-SDI chipset, real estate constrained customers now have access to an integrated, high performing solution for their broadcast needs.
