Product Details

TIFF is a lossless decoder which can be used as a contained for archiving. The implementation is highly optimized for Analog Devices ADSP-BF5xx Blackfin processors. This release will work on image cached from L3 memory. It is a self-contained software component that has been rigorously tested. It contains an intuitive C-callable API that is interruptible, maintains flexibility and provides seamless system integration.

Performance Metrics

 MIPS summary:

  Memory (Bytes) Performance
Module Image Width Image Height Code Stack Data RAM Data ROM Average Cycles / pel MIPS
Decode TIFF (Uncompressed RGB) 225 65 24984 432 40952 972 43.26 9.49
Decode TIFF (LZW RGB) 512 512 22148 492 40952 972 402.04 1580.90

  • Performance (average cycles per pel) measured on ADSP-BF533. The code and data are cached from L3 memory
  • MIPS is measured as ((cycles/pel) * (image width) * (image height) * (frames/second) / 10^6). (It is assumed that frames/second = 15 for calculation)
  • Code compatible across all ADSP-BF5xx processors, with silicon anomaly workarounds implemented based on the following boards.
  • "Data RAM" for one instance, includes Scratch and Instance/State. Input buffer size is 2 KiB and output buffer size is 1 KiB
