VisualApplets 3.2.0 includes a brand new JPEG encoder
replacing the old one!
Super fast! Scalable to any bandwidth
In comparison to the old operator with a fixed parallelism, the new operator allows arbitrary configurations to adapt to any bandwidth.
Compatible with Mono, RGB or Bayer CFA cameras or any other like IR or linescan
One, two, three, four, ... JPEG encoders and cameras on the same frame grabber.
Optimized for todays FPGAs
The new operator will extensively use the FPGA features of the mE5 and mE6 frame grabber series as well as eVA devices using the XILINX 7 series and above. The operator is ready for future frame grabbers,
Mono and Color
The new implementations can be used for monochrome images and color compression.
Ease of use:
The JPEG output includes the JPEG file interchange format header. The DMA transfer can be directly written into a file which can be opened by any image viewer following the JPEG standard.
You can include the JPEG to any VisualApplets design. Mono, RGB, Color, Area, Line, including pre-processing, including 1 or several DMA channels, etc.
The microEnable 5 series frame grabbers offer enough FPGA resources for various configurations. The following table lists only some of the possible configurations.

VisualApplets Examples and Documentation
The usage in VisualApplets is very easy. For monochrome applets, you can directly use the operator. VisualApplets uses a lot of examples make your integration as easy as possible.
For color RGB and Bayer applets VisualApplets comes with pre-defined user libraries enabling color compression.
Each of the user library elements comes with a dedicated help site. This is the same for the mono operator LINK.
Questions? Requests? Feedback?
Let us know if you have questions about the JPEG operator.
The user library elements for color compression are made for specific configurations. If you need another configuration please let us know and we might be able to generate your desired configuration.
