Energy Efficient VLSI Based DCT Architecture with Accurate Error Compensation
Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) is commonly used in image compression. In the history of DCT, a milestone was the Distributed Arithmetic (DA) technique. Due to the technology dependency a multiplier-less computation was built with DA based technique. It occupied less area but the throughput is less. Later, due to the technology scaling, multiplier based architectures can be easily adapted for low-power and high-performance architecture. Fixed width multipliers - reduces hardware and time complexity. In this work, Radix 4 fixed width multiplier is adapted with DCT architecture due to low power consumption and saves 30% power. In order to reduce truncation errors caused during fixed width multiplication, an estimation circuit is designed based on conditional probability theory.
