IP98 Japan, Chiba, October 12 1998
DCT, IDCT, HUFFD no longer available. Please contact Sales to learn more.
Electronic intellectual property (IP) provider CAST, Inc. today announced the addition of a new series of multimedia cores to its broad line of cores and simulation models.
These new Multimedia Series cores are available immediately:
- JPEG Coder/Decoder Core is a fully compliant implementation of the JPEG baseline algorithm, with a simplicity of design that allows for a high operational speed that makes it ideal for multimedia and color printing applications.
- Huffman Decoder Core performs fully programmable Huffman decoding of a JPEG data stream, and is suitable for printers, desktop video editing, digital still cameras, surveillance systems, video conferencing, and other consumer products.
- Discrete Cosine Transform Core performs a Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) -- and also includes the inverse transform (IDCT) -- for an 8X8 block of samples, making it a good building block for image processing, printers, desktop video editing, digital still cameras, surveillance systems, and video conferencing.
- Infrared Controller (IrDA) Core is a highly integrated infrared communications controller that interfaces with a variety of IrDA 1.1 compliant IR transceivers, making it useful for personal computers (both desktop and mobile), computer peripherals, digital cameras, consumer products, and communications equipment.
Licensed from IP developer Xentec, Inc., the new cores are fully verified and supported by CAST. Each core comes complete with VHDL or Verilog synthesizable code, test bench, test vectors, and documentation. Datasheets and more information can be found at the CAST Web site (www.cast-inc.com), where customers may also locate their local CAST distributor.
Pricing varies by core and configuration; customers should contact CAST or their local distributor for details. Customization services are also available, as well as delivery of firm or hard cores for specific ASIC and programmable device families.
CAST will be demonstrating the new Multimedia Series cores -- as well as its complete line of intellectual property -- at IP98 in Chiba, Japan, October 12-13, 1998.
