What may be the world’s fastest JPEG chipset is a three-chip device being advanced by Tokyo Electron Device under the name inrevium.
According to the company, the chipset includes a standard compression image format encoder, a basic DCT sequential method decoder, and a four-channel video multiplexer. That combination makes possible up to 120 frames a second transmission for DVRs, up to 21 frames a second for IP cameras, and up to 120 frames a second for multiplexed video output.
Other hi-res imaging systems that would take advantage of this three-chip device include scanners and medical equipment.
The inrevium is set for mass production in the first quarter of next year.
