Cores Target Image Processing Applications

Targeted at JPEG, MPEG, DSP and image processing applications, the AllianceCORE image compression cores are for use in the firm's Virtex-E and Spartan-II FPGAs. The cores include a discrete/inverse discrete cosine transform and a JPEG codec. The core supports Virtex, Virtex-E, and Spartan-II devices while the JPEG coded supports Virtex and Virtex-E devices. Target applications for the cores include image storage, data and video compression, medical imaging, and industrial systems. The DCT/IDCT core is a critical building block in Dolby AC2 and AC3, JPEG, and MPEG compression systems. The DCT_IDCT core enables high-speed hardware implementation of the forward and inverse discrete cosine transform functions in a low-cost Spartan-II device. The JPEG codec provides a fully integrated encoder-decoder pair used in image compression and decompression applications in a single Virtex series device. The DCT and IDCT core is priced at $10,000 for netlist version. The JPEG codec lists at $30,000.
