By using intellectual property (IP), system-on-chip (SoC) designers can now easily incorporate an HDMI interface in leading edge process technologies such as 90 nm, 65 nm, and 40 nm processes. This eliminates the need for a separate IC, delivering significant power and cost savings. Products for the digital home and portable consumer electronics constitute the main target applications for the HDMI interface. In this paper, learn about what HDMI is, how it’s different from other digital video connections and the advantage of incorporating it into your SoC.
