Data compression in ASIC cores

Vol. 42, No. 6, 1998

Order No. G322-0215
The IBM Microelectronics Division is committed to maintaining a leadership position in the industry as a solutions provider through the functions in the ASIC core program. IBM has made its data compression technology available to the industry through the ASIC (application-specific integrated circuit) Blue Logic core program. The nine papers in this issue describe four of IBM's data compression cores which are in that core library: ALDC (adaptive lossless data compression), JBIG-ABIC (Joint Bi-level Image Group-Adaptive Bi-level Image Compression), MPEG-2 (Moving Picture Experts Group-2), and 401DEC (decompression for the IBM PowerPC 401™ embedded processor).
