Platform Independent JPEG Encoder
Image compression using hardware approach is emerging area for researchers. Paper focuses on a new technique using digital camera using the Evaluator-9t development board (ARM9TDMI) and the OVT9650 digital imaging sensor for compression of Bit Map Images. Uncompressed images taken by the image sensor and then compressed using JPEG compression using ARM processor. Compressed images then transferred to Desktop computer pertaining 32-bit Windows operating system. Compressed image follows all the steps involved in JPEG compression technique. The authors have used various techniques like Digital imaging, Image compression technologies, embedded application of JPEG compression, ARM microcontroller's Serial communication.
