Building the Right Environment to Support AI, Machine Learning and Deep Learning

Synopsys, Inc. today launched its DesignWare(R) HDMI 2.0 TX/RX IP solutions, including controller, PHY, and example Linux drivers to reduce designers' integration risk and time-to-market. With aggregate bandwidth of up to 18 Gbps, the DesignWare HDMI 2.0 IP enables 4K x 2K (4400 vertical pixels x 2250 horizontal pixels) resolution at a 60 Hz frame rate in deep color mode to provide a flickerless, ultra high-definition (UHD) viewing experience. The IP's ability to scramble transition-minimized differential signaling (TMDS) data above 3.4 Gbps adds to the high-quality viewing experience by minimizing the electromagnetic interference (EMI) that occurs in 8b/10b coded data streams. In addition, its robust analog front end supports pre-emphasis and adaptive equalization for excellent signal integrity across cables lengths of greater than 100 feet.
