Barco Silex Image Processing solutions support Altera’s Excalibur Devices

Altera Corporation customers using Excalibur(TM) embedded processor solutions for image processing and digital video now have access to Barco Silex’s intellectual property (IP) portfolio. Barco Silex — a new Altera® Megafunction Partners Program (AMPPSM) partner — initially will introduce several types of JPEG decoders optimized for use within a number of Altera devices.

As a member of the AMPP program, Barco Silex’s JPEG cores are intended for high-speed decoding of gray-scale, color or multi-scan images coded with ISO/IEC 10918-1 baseline coding standard. The autonomous behavior of the cores, their simple FIFO-like interfaces and their 100 percent synchronous structures allow easy integration with complex image processing systems. In a typical implementation, the JPEG cores utilize only 10K logic elements (LEs) and 50 embedded system blocks (ESBs). Barco Silex is also a member of Altera’s Certified Design Center (CDC) program.
