AL-E110L Encoder IP

H.264/AVC, H.265/HEVC, VP9 and JPEG Encoder IP

H.264/AVC, H.265/HEVC, VP9 and JPEG Encoder IP

Allegro DVT’s AL-E100L is the lightweight version of its multi-format encoder IP core, supporting JPEG, H.264/AVC, H.265/HEVC and VP9 video codecs. It brings more than 50% optimization in terms of silicon area. This is accomplished with an optimal silicon area / video quality trade-off which is perfectly suitable for consumer applications. This IP core leverages a true multi-format architecture which allows sharing of HW resources between different codecs and features a scalable architecture which can be scaled to match the resolution of the target application.

AL-E110L encoder IP is perfectly suited for integration in applications such as:

  • Smartphones and tablets
  • Webcams
  • Set-Top Boxes and Home gateways
  • IP cameras
  • Wearable, IoT and Drone cameras
  • Automotive and industrial camera systems

Key advantages

  • Optimal silicon area vs video quality solution
  • Fast and easy integration within a wide range of System-On-Chip (SoC) designs
  • Independent entity, requiring minimum support from the SoC embedded CPU
  • Unique multi-format and scalable architecture
  • Hardware architecture minimizes both gate counts and power consumption
  • Advanced motion estimation algorithms optimized to fit the memory bandwidth and latency requirements of consumer SoCs
