Ocean Logic is a provider of multimedia and encryption IP cores.
Our encryption line includes AES, DES, Triple DES, MD5, SHA-1 and SHA-256.
Our mutlimedia line includes H.264 Baseline Encoder and limited Decoder and, in the past, MPEG-4 Encoder and JPEG Encoder/Decoder.
The JPEG Encoder/Decoder was acquired by InSilicon and it is now part of Synopsys DesignWare.
All the IP cores above are proven in both ASIC and FPGA.
We have recently introduced a new H.264 Baseline Encoder and limited Decoder based on patent pending Compressed Frame Store (CFS) technology that :
- is compatible with existing H.264 decoders
- allows to compress the reference frames 8-16:1 with no error/drift in the reconstruction when a third party decoder is used
Such high level of compression allows the CFS memory to be integrated on the same chip as the encoder/decoder. This eliminates the need for power hungry DRAM. Also, because of the high compression, the CFS memory is rarely accessed. This results in extreme low power.
