Fujitsu Semiconductor Europe (FSEU) has added a new addition to the Fujitsu H6x decoder series: the MB8AL2030 nicknamed HD62. The System on Chip (SoC) supports HEVC (H.265) decoding in HD resolution for multimedia applications in in-car infotainment and home entertainment systems. The H.265 is the successor to the widely used H.264, offering double the data compression ratio compared to its predecessor.
The HD62 also includes an H.264 encoder and supports a 3D graphics engine to accelerate 2D/3D OSD generation, vector graphics, high-quality anti-aliasing and video effects. It comes with comprehensive security features for content protection including DVB descrambling, DTCP, secure boot and OTP to store secure keys, and builds on an ARM Cortex A5 quad-core.
The device offers a very low power consumption, typically 2W, which makes it suitable for use in consumer electronics such as hybrid set-top boxes for broadcasting and streaming, DVB-T2 set-top boxes and home networking.
The HD62 SoC was developed in FSEU’s ASIC Competence Centre in Langen, Germany, by leveraging Fujitsu’s development system for custom System on Chips, which integrates advanced device implementation and manufacturing techniques cultivated through years of experience with ASICs, design services, and development tool kits. The SoC is produced using 55nm process technology in Fujitsu’s Mie plant in Japan and comes in PBGA-484 packaging
