Paper Abstract

The Space Dynamics Laboratory (SDL) has developed a JPEG 2000 image compression demonstration board that implements both Tier1 and Tier2 JPEG 2000 encoding in two Xilinx Virtex II FPGAs. This board was built as a first step toward developing JPEG 2000 image compression hardware that could be used for remote sensing on the ground, in the air, or in Earth orbit. It has been used to demonstrate the power and flexibility of the JPEG 2000 standard in hardware, compressing both 8-bit and 12-bit grayscale images based on decoded image quality as well as output bit rate control. Images have also been compressed in both lossless and lossy modes. The board produces a JPEG 2000 file that includes all header and packet information needed to decode the output file. The output file can be decompressed directly or manipulated in software to enhance certain features of the compressed image. Throughput for the demonstration board is a function of wavelet type and bit depth. The demonstration board can be used in several different configurations as presented in this paper.
