This Project is a collaborative project between the Enterprise and Consumer Electronics (ECE) Group and the IC Designs (ICD) Group in ASTRI. The project is to achieve different goals for the different teams, however, there are significant synergies between the groups that allow us to establish a Technology Center of Excellence for Multi-Media applications in a complete set of advanced technology research, algorithm and architecture developments, system & application, SoC IP creation. The project will be jointly developing H.264 Main Profile and High Profile IPs in hardware FPGA/RTL format with ECE, implementing the H.264 codec solutions from PC software or programmable processor based solutions to hardware FPGA /RTL format and Emulation Platform for Algorithm, Hardware & Software IP development.
