DaVinci Digital Media Processor



Developers can now deliver crystal-clear multiformat video at up to 1080 p H.264 at 30 fps (encode and closed-looped decode) in their digital video designs without concerns of video format support, constrained network bandwidth, limited system storage capacity or cost with the new TMS320DM369 DaVinci™ video processors from TI.

The DM369 device is uniquely capable of running TI’s third-generation noise filtering technology while achieving low-light HD H.264 720p30 video compression and is pin-to-pin compatible with the DM365 processors, using the same ARM ARM926EJ-S core running at 432 MHz. This ARM9-based DM369 device supports production-qualified H.264BP/MP/HP, MPEG-4, MPEG-2, MJPEG, and WMV9 (VC-1) codecs providing customers with the flexibility to select the correct video codec for their application. These codecs run on independent coprocessors (HDVICP and MJCP) offloading all compression needs from the main ARM core. This lets developers obtain optimal performance from the ARM for their applications, including their multichannel, multistream, and multiformat needs.

Video surveillance designers achieve greater compression efficiency to provide more storage without straining the network bandwidth. Developers of media playback and camera-driven applications, such as video doorbells, digital signage, digital video recorders, portable media players, and more can take advantage of the low power consumption and can ensure interoperability and product scalability by taking advantage of the full suite of codecs supported on the DM369 device.

Along with multiformat HD video, the DM369 processor also features a suite of peripherals that reduces system cost and complexity, thus enabling a seamless interface to most additional external devices required for video applications. The image sensor interface is flexible enough to support CCD, CMOS, and various other interfaces such as BT.656, BT1120. The DM369 device also offers a high level of integration with HD display support, including three built-in 10-bit HD analog video digital-to-analog converters (DACs), DDR2/mDDR, Ethernet MAC, USB 2.0, integrated audio, host port interface (HPI), analog-to-digital converter (ADC), and many more features that reduce overall system costs and save real estate on circuit boards, thus allowing for a
