Lowell, MA, September 9, 2014 – M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (MACOM), a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for broadcast video infrastructure, announced today that Inrevium’s Xilinx-targeted FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) utilizes MACOM’s 12G-SDI Chipset to enable 4K60p video. Based on a collaboration with Fidus Systems and Inrevium, the solution supports the proposed 12G-SDI standard and quadruples the video throughput and processing that can be achieved on a single card.“12G-SDI is the next node on the evolution of the SDI standard. By entering into collaboration, Xilinx can now offer customers the ability to process 4K60p images with a single link connection, dramatically increasing the amount of video processing that can be achieved on a single card,” said Gary Shah, VP of Marketing, High Performance Analog, MACOM. “We are excited to deliver solutions that enable the broadcast industry to migrate to higher resolutions.”

“Our customers are developing 4K60p systems using Xilinx All Programmable FPGA and SoC devices. MACOM’s 12G-SDI components along with the Fidus/Inrevium 12G-SDI FMC provide a development platform that enables customers to process their video content through a single link,” said Aaron Behman, Segment Lead for the Broadcast Business at Xilinx.

MACOM’s family of 12G-SDI products are currently shipping in volume. These MACOM products, as well as the new 12G-SDI FMC card will be shown at IBC 2014 in booth 8.C01 (Hall 8) of the RAI convention center in Amsterdam.
