Creo Uses CAST IP Cores in Advanced Leaf Aptus Digital Camera Backs

Semiconductor intellectual property (IP) provider CAST, Inc. today (June 13, 2005) revealed that the Leaf® Aptus digital camera backs announced last month by Creo Inc. employ CAST IP cores for image compression and decompression.

Aimed at professional photographers, the new Leaf Aptus 22 and Leaf Aptus 17 camera backs offer photo resolutions of 22 million and 17 million pixels respectively. Along with fast processors and a variety of convenient storage mechanisms, the lossless data compression implemented by CAST’s cores makes the large data files generated by these cameras significantly more manageable.
