Paper Abstract

The two dimensional discrete cosine transform (2-D DCT) has been chosen as the basis in almost all of the recent international image and video coding standards. This paper first categorized the 2-D DCT and inverse DCT (IDCT) architectures. Then a new VLSI architecture for 2-D DCT/IDCT without transpose memory was proposed. The proposed 2-D DCT/IDCT architecture eliminates special transpose circuits and uses general memory modules to store the intermediate results after row-wise transform. The row-wise and column-wise transforms are performed with the different data flow provided by the configurable computation units and data alignment module. The accuracy testing system is set up to search the optimum word-length parameters. Based on the accuracy testing system, the proposed architecture has achieved the smallest word-length compared with reported 2-D DCT architectures.
