Argon Design Signs Licensing Deal with Chip Developer for Argon Streams

June 9, 2014

Argon Design has licensed Argon Streams to the fabless semiconductor company MediaTek.

According to a company release, Argon Streams is a set of test bit-streams that are generated directly from the HEVC specification to ensure full coverage and complete verification of over 15,000 test cases, including all the obscure, but perfectly legal, corner cases that many other bit-streams overlook.

By accurately measuring the test coverage directly against the specification, the company said, Argon Streams has been optimized to reduce both the size of each bit-stream and the quantity of test bit- streams, both of which help reduce simulation time.

Chi-Cheng Ju, Director of MediaTek'sMultimedia Development in the Office of the CTO, says, "As technology leaders in multimedia, it is imperative to ensure that our decoder designs are leading- edge and fully compliant with the HEVC specification."

Alan Scott, CEO of Argon Design, adds, "We are pleased to welcome MediaTek to the growing family of leading chip design companies that rely on Argon Streams for full verification of their video decoder IP."

Argon Design is a provider of HEVC/H.265 design solutions.
