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.
This technology is currently available for licensing as the exclusive license to a large corporation has now expired. This has resulted in a SoC capable of H.264 encoding of 1080p@30 video with I and P frames and without external DRAM. This SoC will be available soon.
