RFEL Announces New FPGA Video Processing IP Cores

RFEL announced a new family of video processing IP cores. The IP FPGA cores can be supplied with standard software interface frameworks to simplify their deployment. If required, RFEL can modify the cores to meet the requirements of constrained resources or legacy platforms. The new video processing FPGA IP cores are available now, either as standalone cores or as part of a system solution created by RFEL to meet a customer’s requirements.

RFEL Video Processing FPGA IP Cores

Digital Rotation
This IP core supersedes mechanical rotation hardware with state of the art digital processing. Many of the digital rotation IP core features can be configured while the system is still running, so that the user is always fully in control. Reliable, maintenance-free and targeted to low-cost FPGA devices, the digital rotation IP core is a highly efficient, arbitrary sub-degree angle, real-time, 360 degree rotation engine.

Digital Re-sizing
RFEL’s Digital Zoom (DZ) core far exceeds the efficiency and reliability of software-based, image magnification solutions, manipulating images at exceptional speed but consuming a fraction of the power. High-performance image processing systems can now crop and enlarge dynamically and adaptive video systems can now zoom quickly and effectively.

Image Enhancement
A range of advanced image enhancement processing functions is available to assure the highest quality video output. These functions include noise reduction, correction of image distortion and contrast enhancement. User interface displays can be realized with configurable full graphic or symbolic overlays.

Motion Stabilization is an example of a complex and high performance IP core. Stabilization is performed in real-time and entirely electronically. The algorithm compensates for overall x-y shift and roll of a scene, improving end-user vision and reducing work-load. Object tracking may be improved in certain down-stream tracking applications. Highly resource efficient and very low power variants of the stabilization product are available. There are also more complex adaptive system configurations that can be tailored to the specific performance requirements of an application. Utilizing embedded software elements closely coupled to the FPGA functions, these systems are typically produced as system-on-module designs.
