T2M Broadcast/Codec MPEG4 Encoder IP

MPEG4 Encoder IP

Description and Features

MPEG4 Encoder core is compliant with MPEG-4 standard specification. Through its compatibility, it provides a simple interface to a wide range of lowcost devices MPEG4 Encoder is proven in FPGA environment. The host interface of the MPEG4 can be simple interface or can be AHB, AHB-Lite, APB, AXI, AXI-Lite, Tilelink, OCP, VCI, Avalon, PLB, Wishbone or custom buses.
