Sophisticated image and scaling algorithms for high definition video along with state of the art compression standards, such as H.264, are constantly pushing the limits of the memory subsystems with higher performance requirements. In this webinar, Sonics Application Architect Pascal Chauvet will present how a multichannel DRAM subsystem can provide a scalable and memory efficient solution for the next generation of Video SoCs.

Topics covered will include:

  • Digital video architecture requirements
  • DRAM efficiency issues when moving to DDR3
  • Multichannel DRAM architectures
  • A solution to minimize the impact on software, when implementing a complex physical memory architecture
  • Presenter:
