Santa Clara, Calif.Aimed at the digital video recorder and IP camera markets, Tokyo Electron Device Ltd. is sampling what it claims is the industry's fastest JPEG chipset, which consists of a high-speed encoder, decoder and video multiplexer.
The three-chip device marketed under the name inrevium enables high speed (up to 120 frames/second at NTSC) digital video recorders (DVRs) and high resolution (up to 21 frames/second at 2-mega-pixels resolution) IP cameras designed for high quality image security systems and other high resolution imaging systems such as scanners, medical equipment, and automobile video event recorders.
The inrevium JPEG chipset includes the TE3310RPF high-speed JPEG Encoder LSI; TE3320RPF high-speed JPEG Decoder LSI; and the TE3410RPF video multiplexer LSI.
Both the TE3310RPF high-speed JPEG Encoder LSI and the TE3320RPF high-speed JPEG Decoder LSI are fully compliant with ISO/IEC 10918-1. For more on the standard, click here: www.iso.ch/iso/en/CatalogueDetailPage.CatalogueDetail?CSNUMBER=18902&ICS1=35.
The TE3310RPF supports a basic DCT sequential method and a standard compression image format (Y:Cb:Cr = 4:2:2/4:1:1/4:0:0). Since the internal clock is 85.9-MHz, it compresses up to 120 frames/second at NTSC video images (720x480, 4:2:2) and also up to 21 frames/second at 2 Mega-pixels video image (1600x1200, 4:2:2). The TE3310RPF supports various input/output interfaces, 16/32bit Host and SDRAM interfaces.
The TE3310RPF supports a basic DCT sequential method and a standard compression image format (Y:Cb:Cr = 4:4:4/4:2:2/4:1:1/4:0:0). Since the internal clock is 81-MHz, it decompresses up to 116 frames/second at NTSC compressed image (720x480, 4:2:2) and also up to 21 frames/second at 2 Mega-pixels compressed image (1600x1200, 4:2:2). The TE3320RPF supports various input/output interfaces, 16/32bit Host and SDRAM interfaces.
The inrevium TE3410RPF is a Video Multiplexer LSI that supports 4 channels of ITU-R BT.656/4:2:2 compliant video input, 1 channel of playback input, 1 channel of multiplexed video output and 1 channel of video monitor output. It supports up to 30 frames/second for each video input channels and up to 120 frames/second Time-Division Multiplexed video output.
The inrevium JPEG chipset will be in volume production in the first quarter of 2007. TE3310RPF and TE3320RPF cost $15 each in 1000-unit quantities, and the TE3410RPF is priced at $20 each in 1000-unit quantities.
