Paper Abstract

A modified frame memory, the Picture Processing RAM (PPRAM), is proposed for motion estimation. Due to the high input data flow of compression algorithms the PPRAM has been enabled to perform the necessary calculations besides the frame memory cells on the same device. Therefore a small number of logic circuits, less than 5% of the total number of transistors, has to be added to a regular frame memory. This reduces the number of transistors for the compression algorithm and the input data rate significantly.
