Socionext MB86M31: Started to supply test samples chip encoders 4K / 60p HEVC

A month ago, the company began work Socionext, created by Fujitsu and Panasonic. Recall, the company was created by combining units, specializing in the production of integrated circuits. In addition to Fujitsu and Panasonic, it involves the Development Bank of Japan (DBJ).

Today Socionext announced the availability of study samples MB86M31 – according to the manufacturer, the world’s first chip encoder with support for HEVC / H.265. Chip capable of encoding MB86M31 4K video (3840 x 2160 pixels) with a frame rate of 60 k / s on the specified standard in real time. Instead of a single channel 4K possible real-time encoding four channels of Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels). Input Format – 10-bit, YUV 4: 2: 2 progressive or interlaced. The basis is the original encoder core, co-developed with Fujitsu Laboratories. The chip is embedded in a type FCBGA-1764 and takes on board lot size of 35 x 35 mm.

At the same time became available for developers charge MB86M31-EVB and software for the development of device drivers and applications.New video format and compression standard HEVC gaining popularity. However, to date coding 4K required in a real-time concurrent operation of multiple CPU. The new encoder allows multiple reduce the size and power consumption of the equipment.
