TICO Evaluation & Integration by intoPIX

intoPIX offers many different possibilities to assess the quality, capability and characteristics, to speed-up the integration of a fully functional TICO IP-core or SDKs. 

Reference Software or SDKs 

It is possible to access to the TICO reference software executables to assess the compression efficiency. It is also possible to get access to the FastTICO SDKs for evaluation.

FPGA Hardware Development Kits

The intoPIX HDK enables faster and reliable integration. Using a flexible structure, it focuses on providing a seamless environment for the integration of any intoPIX TICO IP-cores, using a FPGA reference board as starting point (Xilinx or Intel). It efficiently validates the integration with a smart step-by-step approach and accelerates the progress towards the final customer application even before the dedicated hardware is ready. Thanks to a layered structure, it significantly eases the porting from one hardware platform to the other, and facilitates switching between applications in the same hardware environment. 


  • Standalone implementation of the custom IP-core flavor on a FPGA reference board
  • Fastest product time to market for new FPGA design or ASIC prototyping
  • Increased integration friendliness and design re-usability

FPGA Application Reference Designs

Additionally to the HDK, intoPIX also accelerates customer product developments with video application reference designs/ proof of concept. The reference designs aim to bring powerful proof of concepts using intoPIX’s high-performance IP-cores.
