The WIC (Wavelet Image Compression) is a synthesizable VHDL model based on the Ocapi Flexwave IP developed by IMEC.
The WIC IP Core supports both lossy and lossless compression modes.

The documentation for the WIC IP Core is included in the Flexwave Documentation Package (2.69MB zip archive) (IMEC, March 2002).
This documentation package is available for download from the menu on the right.
