Paper Abstract

This paper describes the prototype design of a real time color image compression board. The hardware implements image compression as defined by the Joint Photographic Experts Group commonly referred to as the JPEG standard. The architecture and supported image compression modes are described. The design utilizes LSI Logic's JPEG chipset and additional supporting hardware and resides on a 6U VME ProtoMax II prototyping board from Datacube. The design conforms to Datacube's MAXbus specification and can be run at full RS-170 frame rates. Data is input to the board in a 10 MHz pixel stream and emerges from the board at 10 MHz in a compressed format with appropriate byte stuffing and image marker codes. Future directions for supporting MPEG are discussed.
