The JPEG intellectual property (IP) core is intended for high-speed encoding of grayscale, color, or multi-scan images using ISO/IEC 10918-1 baseline coding standard. The encoder supports all features of the baseline standard, including restart markers, DNL, user-definable comments and application markers. The BA116 is able to encode abbreviated-format or full-format images. If preferred, pre-defined default entropy and quantization tables are available. Its autonomous behavior, simple FIFO-like interfaces, and 100% synchronous structure, allow easy integration of the IP into complex systems with little effort. The ease of integration of this powerful IP core is reinforced by the stand-alone ability of the encoder that can be used in systems with very little CPU intervention.
