During this research, several generations of the X-MatchPRO family of lossless data compressors were developed, with each generation improving upon the previous one with higher throughputs and better compression ratios. This work was funded by EPSRC Grant GR/L54530 and GR/M86378 and it was graded as 'Outstanding'. These hardware compressors are currently some of the fastest reported to date, with throughputs up to 3.2 Gigabit/second achieved on low-cost FPGA implementations; they operate two to three times faster than commercial devices, with comparable compression levels. Four patent applications dealing with key aspects of the technology were filed.
Dr Jose Luis Nunez-Yanez obtained a BSc in Industrial Engineering and a MSc in Microelectronics Engineering from the University of La Coruna (Spain) and University Politecnica the Catalunya (UPC, Spain) respectively.
Jose joined the Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering at Loughborough University in October 1997, in order to pursue a Ph.D within the Embedded Systems Design Group. His work was focused on designing high-speed lossless data compression hardware as part of a group effort to offer innovative solutions to the high bandwidth and capacity demands generated by data-intensive applications. He investigated novel compression algorithms and architectures resulting in some ...
