SAN FRANCISCO and GRENOBLE, France, May 29, 2014 --


At DAC 2014, Allegro DVT will perform a live demonstration of its HEVC/H.265 encoder IP core. The demonstration will be conducted on a prototyping platform, demonstrating the features and video quality of our HEVC/H.265 encoder IP.

High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), alias H.265, is the next generation video standard, which brings 50% bitrate savings compared to equivalent H.264/AVC encodings. HEVC is expected to be the mainstream video standard for the next decade, as it technically supersedes all other video formats.

Allegro DVT HEVC/H.265 encoder IP core supports Main and Main10 profiles, up to 4K resolutions.

Our implementation aims at providing the highest possible video quality, and really leverages the bit-rate saving potential provided by the new HEVC coding tools. With an optimized area and low power consumption, our IP is perfectly suited for high volume consumer applications, such as tablets, smartphones, digital & wearable cameras.

Thanks to the aggressive time to market of our IP, our customers can quickly tape out SoCs with cost optimized, high quality HEVC Main/Main10 profiles encoder. With the completion of our HEVC encoding IP, Allegro DVT now provides a comprehensive solution for H.264/AVC & H265/HEVC encoder and decoder IPs.

At DAC 2014, on our booth, we will also demonstrate:

*HEVC/H.265 Decoder IP, our fully compliant HEVC Main/Main10 profile decoder, capable to support real-time decoding of 4K x 2K@60fps resolution and beyond.

*H.264 Hardware Encoding & Codec IPs, with best-in-class video quality, minimized silicon area, optimized power consumption and an ultra-low end-to-end latency.

*WiGig WDE Codec IP, our silicon proven Wireless Display Extension (WDE) codec for next generation 60 GHz wireless technology: IEEE 802.11 ad/WiGig.

*HEVC/H.265 Compliance Streams, provide HEVC/H.265 decoder manufacturers with the perfect tool for validating their developments, and ensure compliance with this upcoming video standard.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
