FPGA IP - SDR/HDR Colour Space Converter

Call: +44 (0)23 8098 8890

This IP core performs the operations necessary to convert between SDR video and HDR video in either direction. The core can be loaded with industry recognised LUTs (look-up tables) to perform colour conversion between standards such as BT.709, BT.2100 & BT.2020. Optionally reconfigurable via AMBA® 4 AXI-Lite, the core can also be used to optimise colours within a video pipeline for broadcast monitors, projection systems, medical displays, AV over IP, etc.

Product ID: 2214


  • Supports all common formats including 4Kp60
  • Less than one line of latency
  • Tetrahedral interpolation
  • Configurable LUT size
  • Works in AMD Vivado™ IP Integrator
  • Uses AMBA 4 AXI-Stream Video

Optional extensions include:

  • Pre/post colour space conversion tone correction LUTs
  • AMBA 4 AXI-Lite LUT reprogramming on the fly


Easy to integrate using either RTL or AMD’s block design flow, this highly configurable core delivers maximum functionality for minimum integration effort. Its tetrahedral interpolation provides faithful conversion resulting in high image quality. The core has been optimised for resource utilisation and timing closure, not only through efficient implementation but also through a carefully considered pipeline architecture.


The following items are included in the delivery package

  • Encrypted RTL source code
  • AMD IP Integration package
  • Delivery testbench showing operation of conversion IP
  • ZCU104 Zynq™ HDMI SDR/HDR Demo design


A demonstration is available showing this IP up-mapping SDR content to HDR. This runs on a ZCU104 Zynq development board and uses AMD's HDMI 2.0 core to receive 4K60 input in RGB 24-bit format and output RGB in 30-bit.

In addition to the above, a downloadable demo for the Kria™ platform will be available soon.
