TICO
 Evaluation & Integration by intoPIX

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

Reference Software or SDKs 

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

FPGA Hardware Development Kits

The intoPIX HDK enables faster and more reliable integration. Using a flexible structure, it focuses on providing a seamless environment for the integration of any intoPIX TICO IP-core, using a FPGA reference board as its 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 an FPGA reference board
  • Fastest product time to market for new FPGA designs 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/proofs of concept. The reference designs aim to deliver a powerful proof of concept using intoPIX’s high-performance IP-cores.
