Abstract: As technology increases, there is a need of fast computing systems to enhance multimedia applications. In this paper, architecture is designed for fixed block size and Variable Block Size (VBS) Motion Estimation Algorithm (MEA). The proposed architectures perform Motion Estimation (ME) by applying Diamond search (DS) algorithm on 1-Bit Transform (1- BT) image frames. The DS based 1-BT ME architecture reduces the minimum clock frequency required and overall power consumption compared with other ME architectures. So, the proposed architectures can be suitable for low power portable video application. The behavior of proposed architecture described in Verilog HDL and functional verification is done using Modelism simulation tool.
Keywords: HDL, VBS, MEA.
