Lossless and Lossy CCSDS 122.0-B-1 Encoder

Get a Quote

The CCSDS-122-E encoder IP core from Alma Technologies is a complete and self-contained implementation of the CCSDS 122.0-B-1 image data compression standard. It offers numerically lossless or Lossy image data compression with up to 16-bit pixel dynamic range. The encoder accepts the uncompressed image data in standard raster-scan pixel order and outputs standalone and fully compliant CCSDS 122.0-B-1 byte-stream format. The CCSDS-122-E is designed for enabling high-rate data compression with low silicon resource usage and without needing an external memory device for its operation. It is available for ASIC or AMD-Xilinx, Efinix, Intel, Lattice and Microsemi FPGA and SoC based designs.

The CCSDS 122.0-B-1 standard fits the compression requirement for a wide range of spaceborne two-dimensional spatial image data. In these applications the requirement is for a scalable data reduction, with the option to use lossless or lossy compression, using a memory-efficient and reduced complexity algorithm that results in a fast, low-power and compact hardware implementation. The Alma Technologies CCSDS-122-E encoder implementation realizes all these expected benefits and supports both lossless and lossy compression with a pixel dynamic range of up to 16 bits.

The CCSDS 122.0-B-1 standard was developed to balance between compression performance and complexity. Similar to JPEG 2000, it utilizes a two-dimensional Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) for image data decorrelation. CCSDS 122.0-B-1 uses a 9/7 integer DWT for the lossless compression, while a 9/7 float DWT is also specified for improved lossy compression efficiency, especially at low bit-rates. Both DWT options are available by the CCSDS-122-E core. For complete control by the application of the lossy compression ratio, the CCSDS-122-E includes also the optional rate control functionality that is provisioned by the standard. Compared to JPEG 2000, CCSDS 122.0-B-1 achieves similar lossless and lossy compression efficiency.

The CCSDS-122-E is designed with simple, fully controllable and FIFO-like, streaming input and output interfaces. It is a complete and autonomous encoder, not needing any host system CPU or GPU support for its operation. Being carefully designed and rigorously verified, the CCSDS-122-E is a reliable and easy-to-use and integrate IP core.
