The Warp Intel FPGA IP

The Warp Intel FPGA IP is a highly optimized core for applying geometric corrections and arbitrary non-linear distortions to a real-time video stream of up to 3,840 x 2,160 pixels and up to 60 frames per second. Maximum image quality is achieved through per-pixel filtering with bi-cubic interpolation on full color resolution 4:4:4 video data at up to 10-bits per color plane. The Warp Intel FPGA IP is delivered with a set of software components including a software driver that configures and controls all of the necessary parameters of the IP, a warp data generator, and an example warp mesh generator. The software can be deployed on a Nios® II processor-based system or SoC (recommended).

Features

  • Arbitrary warp transforms and rotations
  • Highly optimized external memory interface
  • 0.5x to 2x local scaling
  • High quality per-pixel bi-cubic interpolation
  • Coefficient sets available for highest filter quality
  • Full data buffering to allow input and output to operate on independent clock domains
  • Support for 10 bit per color component
  • Support up to 2 pixels in parallel per clock processing
  • Low latency
  • Support resolutions up to 3840 × 2160 at 60 fps and future support for up to 8K at 60 fps
  • Low FPGA resource utilization
  • AXI4-Stream video I/O interface
  • AXI4-Stream ↔ Avalon® stream interface Protocol Converters
  • Avalon memory mapped CPU control and memory interfaces
