Product Evaluation Kits


The H.264 4K Video Decoder IP Core can be evaluated on SOC's Evaluation Kits. Evaluation kits include a carrier-board with all the ports and extensions needed for most video-based applications. The module and carrier board firmware are reconfigurable, and we can license board files if needed.

Begin the evaluation process by any of these methods:

Support


  • Telephone/email support
  • IP Core updates/maintenance subscription
