8-bit Baseline JPEG Codec with Optional Video Rate Control
The JPEG-C core from Alma Technologies is a standalone and high-performance, half-duplex 8-bit Baseline JPEG Codec for still image and video compression applications. Full compliance with the Baseline Sequential DCT mode of the ITU-T T.81 JPEG standard makes this IP core ideal for interoperable systems and devices. The JPEG-C is available for ASIC or AMD-Xilinx, Efinix, Intel, Lattice and Microchip FPGA and SoC based designs.
In addition to the standard defined Baseline JPEG streams, the core is also capable of supporting the video payload of many (de facto) standard motion JPEG container formats. The JPEG-C can also be enhanced with an optional add-on bit-rate control block, which will benefit the bandwidth constrained applications.
The core is designed with easy-to-use, fully controllable and FIFO-like, streaming input and output interfaces. Being carefully designed and rigorously verified, the JPEG-C is a reliable and easy to integrate core. Its deliverables include a complete verification environment and a bit-accurate software model.
