Video IC development tools are software suites used to develop, analyze and improve the design of video integrated circuits (ICs). They include both software and hardware parts and can vary from complete to partial suites. These tools offer solutions for video processing, low-level coding (VHDL or Verilog), and high-level coding (C or C++) for various video system designs. They also allow for testing and debugging the video IC's behavior in real time with various toolsets. This includes features such as waveform visualization, video system designs, image processing tools for quality assurance, communications tools for sharing and integrating with other applications, and power consumption analysis. The development tools also allow for transitioning from high-level programming to low-level coding, meaning that engineers can quickly get their design up and running.
