Hardware Video Codec

#1

Hi,

I'm doing some experiments using Qualcomm hardware video decoders (Maybe named Venus?).

I am wondering if there is a way to buy a stand-alone Venus decoder chip. I want only the decoder, not the whole main SOC.

Also I want to know if there is any documented detail information about Venus, such as register definitions or datasheet?

Thanks a lot.

I don’t know the answer here but I very much doubt it can be bought
standalone.

Unless you have a special relationship with Qualcomm then the public
info is found in the driver source code and in the 410E processor
documentation
