SiliconGear adopts Xilinx's Spartan-6 field programmable gate array (FPGA) into its latest generation high-definition (HD) video security surveillance and video display platform.

SiliconGear recently introduced its new Spartan-6-based multi-channel HD video multiplexer, HD digital video recorder (DVR) solution at Secutech 2011, the 15th international conference for electronic and information security.

SiliconGear says it selected Spartan-6 FPGAs over competing FPGA and application-specific alternatives because its built-in transceivers, high-speed memory controllers and HD-SDI capability met end market requirements for superior DVR video and image processing performance. Over the past year, the company has also designed Xilinx FPGAs into three generations of DVR and set-top box solutions.

"With our new HD-SDI platform, manufacturers can easily implement high-speed transmission of HD video over cable, while significantly reducing their bill of materials by integrating system functionality previously performed by discrete logic for video MUX (multiplex), controllers and other glue logic," said Jong-Yoon Im, chief technology officer, SiliconGear.

"Going forward, we see tremendous potential for Xilinx 28nm 7 series FPGAs for our next-generation DVR and set-top box platforms. We are also looking at developing a complementary HD-SDI camera image signal processing solution."

Since their introduction in February 2009, Xilinx's 6 series FPGAs have been widely adopted in a broad range of applications and key end markets including: aerospace and defence, automotive, consumer, industrial, medical, scientific and wired/wireless communications.

Spartan-6 FPGAs are designed for cost-sensitive applications requiring high-speed connectivity and low-power operation with embedded serial transceivers, advanced power management, and proven 45nm architecture. These devices offer a rich mix of integrated system features; including memory controllers, digital signal processing, and End-point block for PCIe, as well as RoHS-compliant lead-free package options for developing 'greener' electronics products.
