Jointwave enters Japanese medical equipment market with its H.264 video encoder
August 12, 2010 // Julien Happich
Jointwave LLC, supplier of H.264 IP core for FPGA and ASIC, and Spinnaker Systems Inc., a semiconductor intellectual properties distributor in Japan, announced they have jointly gained a design-win in Japan whereby one of the top Japanese medical equipment manufacturers signed a license agreement with Jointwave. The company will supply H.264 encoders and relevant IP cores for its product development.
Jointwave provides video codec IP cores across many different industries. The company's H.264 encoder IP core supports full HD video (1080p) on a single, low-cost FPGA device, such as Altera Cyclone-III or Xilinx Spartan-6, and can be in implemented on 230nm processes for ASIC.
It uses a small amount of memory and has low-memory bandwidth. A precise bit rate control function is built-in and works without external CPU or DSP intervention. All of this makes for a low chip count and a reliable solution. Its low latency is ideal for real-time and interactive applications.
Jointwave's codec works well with pattern recognition and video analytics technologies because of its high-objective video quality. Jointwave's highly efficient CABAC and CAVLC entropy engines support throughput up to hundreds of megabits per second (Mbps), which is very useful for applications that require visually lossless video.
Other attractive features include a small footprint, low power consumption, a low clock rate, high subjective video quality, multiple channels and easy integration. This innovative H.264 implementation is targeted at automotive, avionics, IP surveillance, medical equipment, mobile device, news and broadcast contribution, video conferencing and consumer electronics.
