The H264-D-BP IP core is a video decoder complying to the Constrained Baseline Profile of the AVC/H.264 standard. It implements a hardware decoder with very low latency and high throughput that is suitable for live streaming and other delay-sensitive applications up to full HD resolution. The decoder adds just one macroblock line of latency, which means a negligible real-world latency under one msec for most widely used video formats, including HD/720p and Full-HD/1080p video. The H264-D-BP is designed for trouble-free SoC integration. It operates on a stand-alone basis such that decoding proceeds with no assistance or input from the host processor. The decoder’s memory interface is extremely flexible: it operates on a separate clock domain, is independent from the external memory type, and is tolerant to large latencies. The decoder reports decompressed video parameters, detects and reports bit stream errors to the system, and simplifies video cropping at its output.
The H264-D-BP core can be mapped to any Altera Device (provided sufficient silicon resources are available) and optimized to suit the particular project’s requirements. It occupies approximately 32,000 ALMs, 19 DSPs and 532Kbits of memory, and can process 1080p30 in most Altera devices..
