Hantro G2 is a scalable IP solution providing an optimized silicon area depending on target market and performance requirements varying from leading edge 4K@60 fps for e.g. Ultra-HD TV, to industry standard 1080p HD, or to lower tier SD resolution for feature phones, etc.
Hantro G2 is industry’s first IP to support 4K@60 fps with a single-core architecture using 2 million logic gates.Hantro G2 represents the 13th generation of Hantro Video IP, the market leading video semiconductor IP deployed in billion of chips and used by more than 100 semiconductor companies worldwide.
World's first single-core 4k@60fps video decoder IP
Supported video formats
HEVC Main Profile up to Level 5.1
HEVC Main 10 Profile up to Level 5.1
VP9 Profile 0
