The algorithm exhibits an average compression ratio over 13 to 1 for bitmap image data. The device supports simultaneous compression and decompression operations at 25 MBytes/sec each. A Non-muxed microprocessor interface connects directly to various embedded processors. An additional synchronous 32-bit port transfers data at up to 100 MBytes/sec. Scanners and print engine interfaces may optionally be connected to two 8-bit synchronous video ports for emerging multifunction laser printer and copier applications. Software simulation and an analysis of the algorithm for printer and copier images of various complexity are available for evaluation. 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100 101 102 103 104 105 106 107 108 109 110 111 112 113 114 115 116 117 118 119 120 AHA3410C-025 PQC 160 YYWWD - COUNTRY OF ORIGIN LLLLL 60 59 58 57 56 55 54 53 52 51 50 49 48 47 46 45 44 43 42 41 40 39 38 37 36 35 34 33 32 31 VID4 VID3 VID2 VID1 VID0 INTRN VSS VDD DRIVEN SD DOACKN COACKN DIACKN CIACKN VSS VDD DOREQN COREQN DIREQN CIREQN VIREQN D0 VSS VDD D1 D2 D3 D4 D5 D6 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 VDD VSS PA4 VDD PROCMODE1 PROCMODE0 CSN VDD VSS DIR RSTN PD7 PD6 PD5 VDD VSS PD4 PD3 PD2 PD1 PD0 VDD VSS RDYN VIACKN VID7 VID6 VID5 VDD VSS NOTE: YYWWD = DATE CODE; LLLLL = LOT NUMBER comtech aha corporation VDD VSS D24 D23 D22 D21 D20 D19 D18 D17 D16 D15 VDD VSS VDD VSS CLK VDD VSS VSS D14 D13 D12 VDD VSS D11 D10 D9 D8 D7 FEATURES PERFORMANCE: • 25 MBytes/sec compression/decompression rates • 100 MBytes/sec burst data rate over a 32-bit data bus • 25 MBytes/sec synchronous 8-bit video in and video out ports • Simultaneous compression/decompression operation at full bandwidth • Average 13 to 1 compression ratio for bitmap image data FLEXIBILITY: • Configurable I/O interface for DMA mode, Big Endian or Little Endian, and 32-bit or 16-bit bus widths • Interfaces directly with various i960 or Motorola 68xxx family of processors • Optional 8-bit video input and output ports • Pass-through mode passes raw data through compression and decompression engines • Programmable scan line length up to 2K bytes SYSTEM INTERFACE: • • • • • Single chip compression/decompression solution No external SRAM required Four 16 x 32-bit FIFOs Programmable interrupts Output signals may be tristated to facilitate board level testing OTHERS: • • • • • Low power modes Optional counter checks errors in decompression Ambient temperature spec is 70°C, still air Software emulation program available 120 pin quad flat package APPLICATIONS • Multifunction printers and copiers • High performance laser printers and digital copiers *Request the AHA3410C Product Specification for complete details. comtech aha corporation DOREQN COREQN DIREQN CIREQN SD DOACKN COACKN DIACKN AHA3410C Block Diagram CIACKN Figure 1: DATA PORT CONTROL (From Scanner) VIREQN VID[7:0] VID PORT 8 CI FIFO 16x32 VIACKN 8 COMPRESSOR COEORN CO FIFO 16x32 8 32 D[31:0] DRIVEN DATA PORT 32 32 (To Printer) DI FIFO 16x32 8 VOD PORT VOEORN VOREQN VOD[7:0] VOACKN INTRN RDYN DIR CSN 5 PA[4:0] PD[7:0] 8 8 AHA3410C StarLite MICROPROCESSOR INTERFACE PROCMODE[1:0] RSTN CLK TEST CLOCK DO FIFO 16x32 8 DECOMPRESSOR FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION The coprocessor device has three external high speed synchronous data ports each capable of transferring once every 25 MHz clock. These are a 32-bit bidirectional data port, an 8-bit Video Input Data (VID) port and a Video Output Data (VOD) port. The 32-bit port is capable of transferring up to 100 MBytes/sec. The VID and VOD are capable of up to 25 MBytes/sec each. The device accepts uncompressed data through the 32-bit data or optionally through the 8-bit VID port into its Compression In FIFO (CI FIFO). The 32-bit data port may be configured for 16-bit transfers. Compressed data is available through the 32-bit data port via the Compressed Output FIFO (CO FIFO). The sustained data rate through the compression engine is 25 MBytes/sec. Decompression data may be simultaneously processed by the device. Decompression data is accepted through the 32-bit data port, buffered in the Decompression Input FIFO (DI FIFO), and decompressed. The output data is made available on the 32-bit data port via the Decompression Output FIFO (DO FIFO) or optionally on the 8-bit Video Output port. The decompression engine runs on the 25 MHz clock and is capable of processing an uncompressed byte every clock, i.e. 25 MBytes/sec. The four FIFOs are organized as 16x32 each. For data transfers through the three ports, the “effective” FIFO widths differ according to their data bus widths. Data transfer for compression or decompression is synchronous over the three data ports functioning as DMA masters. To initiate a transfer into or out of the Video ports, the device asserts VxREQN, the external device responds with VxACKN and begins to transfer data over the VID or VOD busses on each succeeding rising edge of the clock until VxREQN is deasserted. The 32-bit port relies on the FIFO Threshold settings to determine the transfer. SYSTEM APPLICATION The device is intended for memory intensive applications, such as high resolution copiers or printers. These applications require the simultaneous compression and decompression capability of the device. Copiers use this feature to feed the compressed bit maps through the decompressor to the printer engine while another process uses the compressor to input and compress scanned images. Movement for both processes is typically controlled by a DMA controller that is programmed by the local microprocessor or by programmed I/O. comtech aha corporation StarLite IMAGE COMPRESSION RESULTS - 1200 x 1200 DPI Uncompressed file size = 16 MBytes; Image dimensions = 10200 × 13200 pels FONTS - Simple Text Output File Size = 783,848 Compression Ratio = 21.5 MATH - Simple Text and Lineart MP - Text and Simple Graphics Output File Size = 86,525 Compression Ratio = 194.5 BENCH2 - Text and Graphics with Pictorials Output File Size = 424,995 Compression Ratio = 39.6 BALLS - Complex Graphics with Pictorials Output File Size = 79,245 Compression Ratio = 212.4 Output File Size = 3,665,167 Compression Ratio = 4.6 comtech aha corporation COMPRESSOR/DECOMPRESSOR FOR MIDRANGE MULTIFUNCTION COPIER/PRINTER APPLICATIONS - AN EXAMPLE FRAME BUFFER MEMORY ACKN[3:0] 2 CPU INTERFACE REQN[3:0] 32 bit 2 DATA PORT PA[4:0] CSN AHA3410C DIR StarLite VID PORT Comtech AHA Corporation (AHA) develops and markets superior integrated circuits, boards, and intellectual property core technology for communications systems architects worldwide.
