The folks at Lattice Semiconductor have announced the availability of multimedia intellectual property (IP) cores from Art of Silicon, a new member of the ispLeverCORE Connection IP partners program. Through the program, Lattice and Art of Silicon will provide complete system solutions for their mutual customers who are integrating system-level IP with the most advanced FPGA silicon architectures. The Lattice Connection program allows customers to easily access and integrate approved third-party IP products into Lattice programmable devices.
"Lattice is pleased to expand into the multimedia IP arena with our new partner, Art of Silicon. Through our partnership, we will address this rapidly growing market with the best silicon and IP solutions available," said Stan Kopec, Lattice corporate vice president of marketing. "Art of Silicon's in-depth multimedia expertise will provide the highest quality solutions to our customers."
"Art of Silicon is pleased to join the ispLeverCORE Connection Program, and to offer our JPEG cores for Lattice FPGAs," said Tom Watts, Director of Art of Silicon. "We have been impressed with the performance and features of Lattice's new generation of FPGAs and will port more of our IP cores in the future."
IP cores from Art of Silicon
Art of Silicon has ported, optimized and tested Grayscale and Color versions of JPEG encoder and decoder IP cores on LatticeECP2, LatticeSC and LatticeXP FPGA devices. All cores support baseline JPEG encode/decode per ISO/IEC 10918-1 and provide extremely competitive implementation results. Full datasheets for these cores are available on the Art of Silicon page on the Lattice website.
These cores are available now in netlist format for immediate purchase from Art of Silicon. Customers should contact Art of Silicon for pricing. Art of Silicon also offers a variety of additional packaging and licensing options to suit specific customer needs. By leveraging partner IP products, customers can quickly implement a wide variety of functions in Lattice programmable devices.
