IP-cores for FPGA & ASIC

JPEG-XS standardized compression for HD & 4K. 
​At the speed of light ​

intoPIX has developed various optimized TICO-XS architectures running a different pixel per clock to target a wide range of resolutions and a wide range of FPGA devices & ASIC technology nodes. 

TICO-XS is a revolutionary compression technology, standardized at JPEG,  extremely tiny in FPGAs & ASICs. It fits into the smallest Xilinx & Intel devices, robust for real-time operation with no latency. It offers a very low gate count & SRAM consumption in ASICs.


 Image/Video Features
  •  Color space: Any (RGB, YCbCr, YUV, XYZ)
  • Color Sampling: 4:2:0*, 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 
  • Bit Depth: 8, 10, 12
  • Interlaced & Progressive frame
  • Resolutions: Any (SD, HD, 2K, 4K, 8K*)
  • Frame Rates: Any (depending on intoPIX IP-core configuration & targeted device)
TICO-XS  Compression
(Latency, Quality, Rate Control)
  • (Sub) intra-frame
  • Real-time operation guaranteed (no overflow or underflow) 
  • Fixed latency - Only few lines of pixels (number of lines depends on the profile)
  • Adjustable rate for lossy / visually lossless / math. lossless 
  • CBR (constant bit rate) operation
  • JPEG-XS compliant (and beyond*)
  • Embedded x2 downscaler / proxy option in decoder*
FPGA/ASIC Implementation
  •  Low-cost implementation in any FPGAs: very low FPGA logic and internal RAM usage (No external DDR required)
    • Fit in the smallest Xilinx Spartan-6, Artix-7, Kintex-7 and Kintex Ultrascale 
    • Fit in the smallest Intel Cyclone V, Arria V, Stratix V, Cyclone 10, Arria 10 
  • Low Gate Area (low gate count / low memory) for ASIC
  • Encoder and decoder have approximately the same complexity 
  • IP-core customizable per application*
