Video Encoder features
3 Video Encoder features
Video Encoder Wrappper consist of the following:
Configuration interface controls Image size, operation control and operation status.
JPEGIn interface controls In JPEG syntax, upload Huffman tables and Quantization Tables (for rate control) MJPEG encoder
which performs 8-bit/12-bit data encoding.
JPEGOut Interface controls bitstream and moving data into 2Kx32bit output buffer - 8KB which is approximately 5 Ethernet
The video encoder receives parallel video YUV422 data at the pixel clock from camera interface. This data can have
embedded vertical and horizontal synchronization signals (VSYNC and HREF) in case of ITU-BT656 format is used or these
signals are distributed on the two separate lines in case external synchronization mode is used. Input logic decodes different
polarity of clock, data and synchronization signals. This data is synchronized with peripheral video clock named
ipg_video_clk (see MPC5604E Reference manual - Figure 8. MPC5604E Clock Selection), with the help of asynchronous
FIFO and then this data is made to pass through decoder block for sync extraction in case of ITU-BT656 format (FF-00-00).
The data is fed directly to the reordering logic, which downsamples the data from YUV422 to YUV420 data. This data is fed
to the MJPEG encoder in 8×8 Blocks (8×8 block = Minimum Coding Unit = MCU), 4 Luma blocks then 2 Chroma blocks,
which compresses the JPEG Image and stores the data in a circular output buffer, from which the data can be read via Amba
Slave Interface.
Figure 1. Video Encoder block diagram
1. Synchronizer – data synchronization with peripheral system clock (ipg_video_clk)
2. Sync Extraction – extraction of vsync and href in case of ITU-BT656. If the video stream is not ITU-BT656 compliant,
video data is directly fed to the third block.
3. Chroma Down Sample - converts the 4:2:2 stream to a 4:2:0 stream by providing interpolation on the chroma
components of the stream.
4. Data Reorder - performs the reordering of the stream from scan line order to MCU block order.
5. MJPEG Encoder - video stream is MJPEG encoded.
6. Output Buffer - the encoded stream is written to a circular buffer SRAM.
7. Subchannel reception – read 256 bytes of YUV422 video data which can be used for reading subchannel information or
debugging purposes.

Camera input interface
MPC5604E RAM memory is designed for processing. At the input buffer side the RAM can hold up to 16 lines which needs
to be buffered for pixel reordering. At the output buffer side the RAM is designed to hold compressed data for 16 lines @
~100Mbits/sec. Storing a complete image at high bitrates requires ~200KB and more. Processing of the raw image data, for
example, image scaling, is not supported by the MPC5604E. It is also not possible to view uncompressed video through the
MPC5604E. Only a snapshot of 8-bit data with 256 bytes can be done using the snapshot feature. Video Encoder module has
an 8KB output buffer which stores the output data. Fast Ethernet controller (FEC) can be directly read from this buffer which
means the main SRAM memory is bypassed.
It is NOT possible to store complete pictures in the internal memory because it is a
functional safety requirement, since use case is a driver assistance system here and in
worst case, it resends an old outdated image.
4 Camera input interface
The input interface accepts ITU-BT656 mode data with external HREF/VSYNC sync inputs. In case mode is set to ITUBT656, syncing is embedded per ITU-BT656 specification in the 8 most significant data lines. In case HREF/VSYNC
syncing is enabled, HREF and VSYNC signal are input. HREF is active when line pixel data is valid, VSYNC becomes
active during the vertical blanking. For more information about External Sync Interface or ITU-BT656 see MPC5604E
Reference manual.
4.1 Input interface pixel data format
Input interface support YUV422 pixel data. There is no support for RAW, YUV420 or gray level only video data. For the
sequence YUYV the MPC5604E requires the camera to send the data in 4 cycle:
1st cycle: Y
2nd cycle: U
3rd cycle: Y
4th cycle : V
It is possible to change the luma-chroma order to UYUV. YUYV sequence which is done within two cycles and is NOT
suported by MPC5604E camera interface:
• 1st cycle: YU (NOT SUPPORTED)
• 2nd Cycle: YV (NOT SUPPORTED)
MPC5604E Video Encoder is capable for 1Mp x 30fps@100MHz.
4.2 Pixel clock calculation
Let us have camera device with following parameters:
1280x800 = 1Mpixel
YUV422 = 2 cycles / pixel (1 cycle / pixel is not supported by MPC5604E)
h-blanking = 1.5x (1920 pixels)
v-blanking = 40 lines
frame rate = 30fps

Circular output buffer
4.3 Bit width and camera clock generation
The video interface can interface with 8-bit, 10-bit or 12-bit input. Input format is 8/10/12 bit, programmable. While our
Video encoder can connect to sensors with 8,10 or 12-bit, there is no 10-bit JPEG standard. The baseline JPEG with 8-bit and
the extended JPEG with 12-bit is supported. To support 10-bit camera sensors, the extended JPEG compression needs to be
used. The Video encoder will pad the 2 LSBs. Camera sensor usually requires an input clock that can be provided by
MPC5604E. There are following possibilities:
• Using eTimer
• Use output clock (clk_out- see MPC5604E Reference manual, Figure 8. MPC5604E Clock Selection)) feature of the
clock generation module (MC_CGM).
There are also following possibilities for camera exposure synchronization:
• Using AVB real time clock (asynchronous to Camera Clock)
• Using eTimer
4.4 Signal Polarity
Input logic of Video Encoder can be configured via Status_Config register to accept various polarities of Clock, VSYNC and
HREF signals. Polarity configuration of VSYNC and HREF signals also drives Sub-channel start point, from where Subchannel data is going to be recorded. As mentioned before, the luma-chroma order can be selected for YUYV or UYVY.
5 Circular output buffer
The MJPEG Encoder store encoded data into circular output buffer of size 2048x32bits. This buffer is accessible via crossbar
switch to other modules connected into it. The circular buffer is directly visible and is memory mapped from 0x5000_0000 to
Output buffer RAM should not be used to extend general purposed SRAM memory.
Circular output buffer must be configured before MJPEG encoding process starts. It’s required to configure
dma_vstart_address, dma_alarm_address and enable dma_package_data_ready interrupt. For details about initialization
sequence see chapter configuration sequence.
6 Huffman and Quantization tables
The MJPEG Encoder needs to be pre-configured to define the Huffman & Quantization tables, frame format, length of restart
interval and others. This information is provided to the MJPEG IP using its configuration Interface. To implement this, the
video encoder wrapper has a JPEGIn Buffer (256x32 bits). This buffer RAM needs to be configured with the configuration
stream prior to starting the MJPEG encoder – see chapter initialization sequence. For every resolution, some dummy ppm
image needs to be generated as input with any graphics tool. Important are IMAGE, QUALITY FACTOR, RESTART
(number of macro blocks) and the threshold settings for the rate control. Configuration stream is then represented as exact
JPEG syntax except that between SOS and EOS there are no bits.

Bandwidth control
7 Bandwidth control
In case of video data stream going into the Video encoder at the 1280×800× 30 fps×10-bit, the 307.2Mbit/s bandwidth is
required to send uncompressed data through Ethernet interface. Thus, compression (JPEG) is required to shrink the data
volume to below 100Mbit/s.
There are two ways to control bandwidth of the output stream on VE, one through quality factor (does not guarantee the
output bandwidth) the other is bandwidth limiter (Guarantees not overrun the circular output buffer).
Data are passed through MJPEG encoder which has a configurable quality factor between 1 and 100, which should represent
the human perception of picture quality. User software should implement bandwidth control algorithm, where each measures
the size of each generated picture and compares that to an expected value. It then adjusts the quality factor to that value.
Typical value of bandwidth after MJPEG encoder is 20 and 70Mbit/s. At 20Mbit/s the quality actually looks good already. In
addition to quality factor control there is BW limiter in place which is image independent. Once it sent the maximum level,
say 70Mbps, the output will not exceed irrespective of the input image.
It is recommended to implement a subset of AVB for Automotive and that standard recommends that it does not use more
than 75% of a link for streaming purposes. That means application needs to limit the image streaming to 75Mbit/s maximum,
many light conditions, even a quality factor of 100 will not produce 75 Mbit/s JPEG output. The bandwidth generated by the
JPEG encoder is extremely dependent on the dynamics of the image which is processed.
Bandwidth limiter is controlled via Luminance and Chrominance component thresholds which are calculated following way:
JPEG standard (for YUV420) defines Macroblock with size of 16x16 pixels.
where 16 x 16 is a block size in pixels
Ratio represents percent of luminance and chrominance in the output image.
8 Sub-channel mode
Sub-channel mode allows access 256 bytes of uncompressed YUYV video data. This feature allows transmitting imager
register values or histogram data during the vertical blanking. It also allows dumping any other usable data for debugging
purpose with maximum size of 256 bytes.
Following sequence is recommended for sub-channel mode:
1. Configuration of Sub-channel Start point and Sub-channel Buffer Start Sub-channel data are recorded from different
positions based on sub-channel start point bit and sub-channel buffer start configuration.
Sub-channel Start point determines the following:
MPC5604E Video Encoder Wrapper, Rev. 1, 05/2012
Freescale Semiconductor, Inc.
Sub-channel mode
• pixel clock counting starts from the starting edge of VSYNC (Sub-channel Start Point = 0) (FIGURE2)
• pixel clock counting starts from the first valid pixel of the frame (Sub-channel Start Point = 1). First valid pixel of
the frame means first HREF’s starting edge after VSYNC in case of external sync mode (FIGURE3) and first
HSYNC’s negative edge after VSYNC in case of embedded sync mode (FIGURE4).
Sub-channel buffer start address specifies the number of pixel clocks after HREG/VSYNC from where
recording data to sub-channel SRAM is expected.
Figure 2. Sub-channel data for external/embedded sync, Sub-channel Start point = 0

starting edge of VSYNC. After 80 pixel clocks data will be recorded into Sub-channel
2. Configure pixel count.
Defines number of pixels to be stored in sub-channel SRAM.
VE.PIXEL_COUNT.B.PIXEL_COUNT=256; // 256 bytes will be stored in the Sub-channel SRAM
3. Enable sub-channel interrupt request.
Sub-channel Interrupt Request allows decrease Core loading by interrupt which signalize that sub-channel data are
received and ready for processor read sub-channel data are successfully stored on the sub-channel memory and core
can access it.
VE.STATUS_CONFIG.B.SUBCHANNEL_IRQ_EN=1; //enable Sub-channel Interrupt Request
INTC.PSR[181].R = 1; // Increase priority of sub-channel interrupt source #181 above priority of the current process in
the Interrupt controller.
4. Enable sub-channel data request.
This flag allows sub-channel mode know that user requests sub-channel data from the following frame. Based on the
sub-channel Start point, Buffer start address and pixel count configuration sub-channel data are stored to 64x32 SRAM.
User software will get information from sub-channel interrupt that sub-channel data are successfully stored and core
can access it.
9 Video Encoder memory map description
Video Encoder memory map (see MPC5604E Reference manual) can be divided into the following three sections:
MPC5604E Video Encoder Wrapper, Rev. 1, 05/2012
Freescale Semiconductor, Inc.
Video Encoder interrupt sources
Video Encoder registers: Registers in this section contains configuration registers for input logic, information about image
resolution, interrupt and DMA configuration. It also contains Subchannel buffer, JPEGIn buffer and Circular output buffer
Control registers: Registers in this section control start or stop or bandwidth of MJPEG compression.
Status registers: Registers in this section shows status of MJPEG module.
Following text describes usecase of several registers in the Video Encoder.
Dma_vstart_address – user may initialize vstart of next frame by DMA_VSTART address register. For example 1st frame
will have DMA_VSTART address configured to 0 ( 0x0 + offset of the circular output buffer). This address can be
reconfigured for 2nd frame if needed.
Dma_vend_address – status register which correspond to the address where current frame ends in the circular output buffer.
Dma_alarm_address – this register contains watermark of the circular output buffer which may generate interrupt, if enabled
in status_config register. Within this interrupt SW should start emptying output buffer. Subchannel_buffer start address –
specifies the number of pixel clocks after HREG/VSYNC from where recording data to subchannel SRAM is expected.
JPEG in offset address – contains address of JPEG configuration stream in the JPEGIn buffer space. Change of JPEG in
offset address can be used in the way when change of quality factor is required, it is possible to use different JPEG
configuration streams located on different addresses and point MJPEG encoder to correct or change configuration with use of
JPEG in offset address.
10 Video Encoder interrupt sources
Video Encoder has 6 interrupt sources available. These interrupt sources can handle more than one interrupt event from
Video Encoder. Following table shows relationship between interrupt sources of Interrupt controller (INTC) and interrupt
events of Video Encoder.

SIUL.PCR34.R= 0x0107; // VID_D0 - Input
SIUL.PCR35.R= 0x0107; // VID_D1 - Input
2. Clock source for Camera input clock – in our example Clock Generation Module (MC_CGM) is used to generate
required clock source for camera interface via clk_out pad. The maximum frequency supported by clk_out pad is 32
MHz. Camera interface should increase this frequency using its own PLL to required pixel clock frequency.
3. Configuration of input circuit of Video Camera module.
VE.PICTURE_SIZE.B.PICTURE_HSIZE= 0x28; // Number of pixels in line. Value written to
the register should be multiplication of 32. 40 × 32 = 1280 pixels
VE.PICTURE_SIZE.B.PICTURE_VSIZE= 0x32; // Number of lines in field. Value written to
the register should be multiplication of 16. 50 × 16 = 800 lines
VE.STATUS_CONFIG.B.SYNC_MODE=0; // Defines whether ITU-BT656 like embedded sync
(SYNC_MODE=1)or Hsync/Vsync external signals are used for syncing (SYNC_MODE=0)
VE.STATUS_CONFIG.B.BIT_WIDTH_IN=0; // 8 bits WidthIn is used for data transfer.
VE.STATUS_CONFIG.B.PIXEL_ORDER=0; // Defines whether first chroma pixel or luma pixel
will come in the camera input stream. If PIXEL_ORDER = 0, luma pixel first in YCbCr
VE.STATUS_CONFIG.B.VSYNC_POL=1; // Defines the active polarity of VSYNC signal. If
VSYNC_POL = 1, VSYNC is active high.
VE.STATUS_CONFIG.B.HREF_POL=1; // Defines the active polarity of HREF signal. If
HREF_POL = 1, HREF is active high.
VE.STATUS_CONFIG.B.PIXEL_CLOCK_POLARITY=1; // Defines whether data is sampled on
positive or negative edge of pixel clock. If PIXEL_CLOCK_POLARITY = 1, data is sampled
on positive edge of pixel clock.
4. This JPEG configuration stream is compliant to the JPEG Syntax. Configuration sections are marked in the JPEG
syntax by 0xFF in the bit stream. Given below are some typical configurations that are required to be adjusted to the
application are given. The start codes for these fields are marked with gray background.
Frame Size: This is part of the “Start Of Frame” (SoF) header indicated by 0xFFC0 for 8 bit mode and 0xFFC1 for 12
bit mode. The header is followed by 0x0011 and 0x08/0x0C (8-bit/12 bit mode) followed by 16 bit values for the image
geometry (gray marked), first Y-size (0x0320 = ‘d800) followed by X-size (0x0500 = ‘d1280), i.e., 1280x800 pixel

Initialization Sequence
Quantization tables: These DQT sections are indicated by 0xFFDB header. The header is followed by the table length
and precision (0x00430 for 8 bit quantization values used for 8 or 12 bit mode or 0x00831 for 16 bit quantization
values used for the 12-bit mode), the quantization table identifier (0x0 typically used for the Y-channel or 0x1 typically
used for the U/V-channel), and 64 quantization values (each 8bit or 16bit) in zigzag order. The first of the 64
quantization values is also marked gray.
Restart Interval: The DRI section is indicated by the 0xFFDD marker. The marker is followed by 0x0004 and the
Restart Interval in Minimum Coding Units (16x16 pixel blocks for YUV420). In the given example this value is
0x0050 = ‘d80 MCUs corresponding to one 16 lines row in the image. The Restart Interval is optional and can be set to
any value independently of the X-size of the image. Using the Restart interval allows to decoder to recover during a
frame in case a bit error happened.
The following gives an example for a JPEG configuration stream.
size_JPEG_Conf = sizeof(JPEG_Conf_Stream); // get size of JPEG configuration stream which vary for different
for (i = 0; i < (size_JPEG_Conf/4); i++)
(*((volatile unsigned*) (JPEG_IN_BUFFER_START_ADDR+4*i))) = JPEG_Conf_Stream[i]; //Load JPEG
configuration stream to JPEGIn buffer space. Based on Video Encoder memory map

5. Enable write of Output Buffer and enable Video Encoder.
Enable write of Output Buffer through VE. This also enables read access to output
buffer, once Video Encoder is on.
VE.STATUS_CONFIG.B.VIDEO_ENCODER_ON=1; // Turn video encoder on
6. Program parameters and required interrupt for data handling with use Output buffer.
VE.DMA_ALARM_ADDRESS.R = 0x400; // Programming DMA Alarm Address
VE.STATUS_CONFIG.B. DMA_TXFER_IRQ_EN = 1; //Enable DMA transfer interrupt at Video
INTC.PSR[182].R = 0x02; // Increase priority of DMA_TXFER_IRQ above priority of the
current process.
VE.CFG_MODE.R = 0xFF; // Configure bitmapped register that controls JPEGE-X output
stream generation mode.
See MPC5604E Reference manual for details.
VE.MODE.R = 0xE0; // Configure bitmapped register that controls JPEGE-X operation mode.
Write 0xE0 value to the Video Encoder mode register cause, that the MJPEG core enters
configuration mode, afterwards, the core exits idle mode and baseline sequential mode
of operation is selected for 8-bit width in. For more information see MPC5604E
Reference manual.
As soon as Video Encoder receive expected Video data and Synchronization signals, Packet Data Ready interrupt #182
occurs when DMA thresh hold crossed. It is upto the user application to handle data from the output buffer.
