Z3 Technology’s Z3-DM8148-RPS-Lite H.264 1080p60 System, Based on TI’s DaVinci™ DM8148 Video Processor

Wednesday, March 07, 2012 | Press Releases

Providing the latest in integrated multimedia module solutions and products, Z3 Technology today introduced its low-power Z3-DM8148-RPS-Lite H.264 1080p60 system based on the DaVinci™ DM8148 video processor from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI).

The Z3-DM8148-RPS-Lite is based upon our Z3-DM8148-MOD-02 module which uses TI’s DaVinci DM8148 video processor. Our Z3-DM8148-MOD-02 module is 88mm x 108mm in size and supports up to 1.2GHz ARM® Cortex™-A8, 1.0GHz TMS320C674x floating-point DSP, 512MB of DDR2 and 256MB of Flash, GigE, USB 2.0, SATA2, PCIe 2.0, HDMI and RS-232. The Z3-DM8148-MOD-02 features a unique expansion interface comprised of five high density connectors providing access to the greatest majority of interface signals available from the DM8148 video processor.

The Z3-DM8148-MOD-02 is suited for power-sensitive applications requiring a single video stream. These applications include broadcast video encoding and decoding, video surveillance and security, industrial digital video recorders (DVR), medical video and industrial video.

The Z3-DM8148-RPS-Lite OEM-ready module is available today. To view the Z3-DM8148-RPS-Lite datasheet, contact Z3 at sales@z3technology.com
