Hardent increases involvement in the development of industry standards for System-on-Chip (SoC) video processing design.
Hardent, a leading consulting company for FPGA and ASIC design, has become a voting member of the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) in order to influence the future directions of the display industry. As a member of VESA, Hardent will contribute to the development of the latest standards in video processing and display technology.
Hardent provides leading-edge ASIC and SoC design services to electronics manufacturers that incorporate display technology in devices such as smartphones, tablets and TVs. Manufacturers aim to lower costs, increase display resolutions, increase autonomy with energy efficient designs and reduce electromagnetic emissions while keeping up with the rapidly changing standards. Electronics manufacturers find it challenging to address the technical issues faced when integrating IP supporting new industry video standards in their SoC design. “Hardent combines the company’s ASIC and FPGA expertise with deep knowledge in emerging VESA standards to assist clients meet strict time-to-market deadlines,” says Alain Legault, Principal at Hardent. “By collaborating on the latest standards we acquire state of the art knowledge and expertise that is allowing us to accelerate SoC design schedules for our clients by making the design, verification and integration work much easier for them.”
Hardent intends to participate in the creation of standards for the Display Stream Compression (DSC) video compression algorithms as part of the Display Stream Compression Task Group. Hardent’s involvement in VESA and the DSC Task Group will enable the company to influence future developments in the display industry. The DSC Task Group meetings give Hardent the opportunity to network with industry experts such as Apple, Broadcom, Intel, Qualcomm, Toshiba and Samsung, while participating in state-of-the-art technical discussions.
