H.264 ENCODER FPGA Core - High Speed Micro Footprint
Our FPGA core is highly optimized and 80% SMALLER AND FASTER THAN THE COMPETITION WITH 〈 1ms LATENCY @ 1080p30!
It is capable of being synthesized in many FPGAs and supports H.264 variable and fixed bit-rate encoding of video streams. Encodes video data at 1.5 clocks/pixel. Typical clock rate in an Xilinx SPARTAN 6 is 95Mhz. Typical clock rate in a Xilinx Zynq 7020 is 95MHz. Multiple cores can be used for processing larger size or higher frame rate images. Uses FPGA specific DDR 3 controller and microprocessor soft core. In addition, the standard core can be customized, retaining ITAR compliance, to meet unique functional needs.
