Latest White Paper
In this paper we look at how IP cores for hardware GZIP/Deflate based data compression and decompression can significantly reduce power consumption in large categories of IoT devices. We will further show through multiple examples that the power reductions to be gained far exceeds the active and idle power usage of the additional compression and decompression cores.
