An FPGA-developed WiMAX system, using the new IEEE 802.16e standard, can provide mobility to the end user while meeting the manufacturer’s speed, flexibility, integration, and time-to-market challenges.
Digital video surveillance systems now offer enhanced capabilities that make them a compelling alternative to traditional analog systems. In addition to offering advanced video compression techniques such as MPEG-4 and H.264, digital video surveillance systems can be augmented with algorithms such as stabilization, video motion detection, watermarking, and encryption. This article highlights the benefits of these new technologies and their optimal implementation on a platform using a combination of digital signal processors and FPGA coprocessors.
