DesignWare IP for Digital Home 

Market Overview 

The digital home market consists of a variety of multimedia entertainment devices functioning together as an integrated home network. As consumers continue to incorporate more media-rich content into their homes, the demand for complex systems that deliver the highest quality user experience is rapidly growing. This demand translates into the need for highly integrated systems-on-chip (SoCs) that provide high performance and exceptional processing capabilities. To speed development cycles, reduce risk and lower cost of these integrated circuits (ICs), designers are turning to IP to meet their critical time to market windows.
