News Xilinx and CAST Announce Immediate Availability of Digital Video Technology Cores

Introduction of new cores further strengthens Xilinx penetration in DVT applications

SAN JOSE, California, February 26 2002

This product is no longer available to license from CAST. Please contact CAST Sales for more info.

c32025, dct, idct, bb_2dwt, lb_2dfdwt, and rc_2dfdwt have been discontinued. Please contact Sales to learn more.

Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ:XLNX), and CAST, Inc., a Xilinx AllianceCore‘ partner and leading IP provider, today announced the immediate availability of six new cores for Xilinx™, Virtex™, and Spartan II™ families of FPGAs. The new cores target a wide range of digital video applications, such as desktop video editing, digital still cameras, set-top boxes, and digital televisions. Immediately available from CAST, the new cores include image compression, wavelet-based image and video CODECs, and digital signal processing.

“Digital video and programmable logic are the kind of perfectly matched solution our IP customers require,” said Newton Abdalla vice president for general-purpose IP at CAST. “Xilinx FPGAs are excellent for quickly and cost-effectively implementing high-speed DSP algorithms such as these advanced wavelet and cosine transforms.”

Cores and Applications

  • DCT /IDCT (Discrete/Inverse Discrete Cosine Transform) – three cores for image compression and decompression for applications such as printers, desktop video editing, digital still cameras and various progressive image transmissions systems.
  • 2DWT (2D Discrete Wavelet Transform) – three cores for forward and inverse row-column DWT, line-based programmable forward DWT, and block-based forward DWT. These wavelet-based image and video CODECs (JPEG2000, MPEG4) are suitable for printers, digital cameras, and scanners.
  • DSP (Digital Signal Processor) – optimized for video applications including: digital sound processing (adaptive filtering, FFT, other special sound effects), voice recognition, medical diagnostic equipment, computer peripherals.

“These new cores from CAST highlight our commitment to align ourselves with IP providers who are focused on new and emerging markets such as digital video technology,” said Robert Bielby, senior director of strategic solutions marketing at Xilinx.
