The JPEG encoder has been highly optimized to run on the Analog Devices' Blackfin® processor family. It is a self-contained software module that is fully compliant with ISO/IEC 10918-1:1993 (ITU-T T.81). This software has undergone rigorous interoperability testing across many commercially available platforms, and open source applications. This module can be used to build a Motion-JPEG video system, for example using the AVI file format.
The module uses a C-callable API that includes a number of system interface hooks via user call-back functions. This allows better customization and optimization of data input/output integration, and meta-data processing (for example EXIF). The code has no dependencies on processor peripherals or registers, adding greater system flexibility and ease of use.

- This table highlights example Blackfin processors and average cycle counts. The ADSP-BF609 processor includes additional L2 on-chip memory which can help reduce cycles when fully utilized. Similarly, processors with higher bandwidth external memory interfaces (32-bit versus 16-bit, and DDR versus SDRAM) will also help reduce overall cycle requirements.
- Cycles measured using standard Mandrill 512x512 YUV420 image, with quality factor 60 in sequential encoding mode, running on ADSP-BF533/BF609 with optimum memory layout.
- BF533 Core Clock = 594 MHz, System Clock = 118 MHz; BF609 Core Clock = 500 MHz, System Clock = 250 MHz, Dynamic Mem Clock = 250 MHz.
- Code compatible across all Blackfin processors, with silicon anomaly workarounds implemented.
- "Data RAM" for one instance, includes scratch buffer and stack, and minimum heap memory.
- 1 KiB = 1024 Bytes.
