Gidel’s lossless compression FPGA IP Core is real-time compression for Color Filter Arrays such as Bayer, Monochrome, and RGB images and videos.
The IP enables compression of multiple cameras or sensors at pixel clock rates exceeding 1 Giga pixels, while using very small FPGA resources and minimal power consumption. The compression is highly efficient, and has demonstrated video applications achieving a lossless compression ratio of 1:2.3.
Compression Performance Example
|FPGA||Arria 10 (slowest device)|
|Throughput||540 Mega components/s|
|Line size6||6K pixels/line|
|Bit / Component||8|
The IP is supported by Gidel’s comprehensive ecosystem that allows tailoring of optimized solutions that may include image processing, vision algorithms, and a concurrent recording system. The recording system may also be complemented by Gidel’s CamSim playback system.
There are two compression modes:
The compression can be optimized either by pre-training based on sample images data, or by on-the-fly training based on real-time data.
The IP is supported by a decompression software enabling:
