Alma Technologies Announces the Immediate Availability of an Ultra-High Throughput Image Scaler IP Core
|ATHENS, Greece, August 03, 2022
Alma Technologies S.A. today announced its new UHT-SCALER IP core, a standalone and high-performance image scaler, designed for enabling ultra-high frame rate SD, HD or Ultra HD (4K/8K and beyond) image resizing, even in low-end ASIC or FPGA silicon.
The UHT-SCALER core is a video processing block used to resize (scale) input color images of one size to output color images of a different size. Output image can be smaller or larger than the original image, depending on the programmed scaling ratio. The core supports scaling of 4:4:4, 4:2:2, 4:2:0 and 4:0:0 (grayscale) video streams, in 8 up to 16 bits sample depth and provides excellent visual results by using bilinear, bicubic, lanczos or expfilter scaling algorithms. The implementation is a fully accelerated, standalone and robust solution in a single IP instance, saving on ASIC or FPGA silicon area and power. The core does not need an external memory device for its implementation.
The new Alma Technologies UHT-SCALER IP is very easy-to-use and integrate in a system. It is self-contained, CPU-less, complete H/W implementation and is available either in RTL source code, or as pre-synthesized Netlist for all major FPGA vendor devices.
