Video codecs in SoCs using OCP-based programmable accelerator design
Design How-To  
4/27/2007   Post a comment
Video codecs involve a huge amount of data parallelism due to their block-based structure. Most computations are not performed on a single pixel, but on a block of pixels. Dedicated acceleration units with a wide data-path (16 x 16 x 8-bit = 2048-bit, for example) speed up the codec by up to three orders in magnitude compared to a pure software solution, facilitating lower clock rates. To support multiple standards, such as the VC-1 and H.264 video codecs, within a single SoC, considerable flexi
