Internet video/audio gateway system

  • Custom designed circuit boards, FPGA code for video processing, real-time 4K SHD Video decoding and encoding
    for video streams from/to the internet. Support both HDMI and SDI Video and audio.
  • Technologies: AMD/Xilinx ZU7EV, Vivado FPGA design, petalinux Linux distribution, HDMI, SDI, GStreamer, Linux DRM

AMD/Xilinx® Zynq® OpenAMP

  • Fidus designed a demonstration system, based on Zynq Ultrascale+. This project involved designing a GUI that allows the user to execute AES, SHA2 and SHA3 algorithms. The algorithms were run on both bare metal as well as the FPGA fabric. This project demonstrated Fidus’ software expertise with Asymmetric Multi Processing (CPU0: Linux, CPU1: Bare Metal), High-Level Synthesis, Isolation Design Flow, and Partial Reconfiguration.
