Paper Abstract

In this paper, a computational random access memory (C*RAM) implementation of MPEG-2 video compression standard is presented. This implementation has the advantage of processing image/video data in parallel and directly in the frame buffers. Therefore, savings in execution time and I/O bandwidth due to massively parallel on-chip computation and reduction in the data transfer among chips is achieved. As a result, MPEG-2 video encoding can be realized in real-time on a programmable 64 Mb DRAM-based C*RAM.
