With advances in video coding standards like H.264 and HEVC coupled with those in the display technology, Ultra HD contents have started taking the mainstream. This is driving the need for high computation and memory bandwidth in current multi-media SOCs. In this paper, we present a monolithic multi-format video codec engine which achieves Ultra HD performance for H.264 High Profile, reduces the external memory bandwidth requirement by 2X as compared to its predecessor and takes only 5.9 mm 2 of silicon area in a low power 28nm process.
