Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 95-2
Budget: 01/01/95 - 12/31/95

We propose to develop a low power image encoder based on vector quantization and active-pixel-sensor technology for real-time video, data compression. The hardware incorporates a novel pipelined architecture with intraframe and interframe block codings for significant bit-rate reduction and low-power operation. The intraframe coder utilizes vect...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 94-1
Budget: 01/01/94 - 12/31/94

The VLSI implementation of a novel image encoder/decoder chip, the Wavelet-Vector Quantization (WVQ), is proposed for use in high resolution, real-time, and low-power image compression applications. This single chip custom hybrid VLSI CMOS processor is based architecturally on the wavelet transform - vector quantization encoding algorithm in ima...
