Two dimensional discrete cosine transform (DCT) and inverse DCT (IDCT) have been widely used in many image processing systems. In this paper, efficient architectures with parallel and pipelined structures are proposed to implement 8times8 DCT and IDCT processors. In which, two 8-point DCT/IDCT processors with dual-bank of SRAM (128 words) and coefficient(More)
Digital watermarking has attracted lots of researches to healthcare information management systems for access control, patients' data protection, and information retrieval. The well-known quantization index modulation-(QIM-) based watermarking has its limitations as the host image will be destroyed; however, the recovery of medical images is essential to(More)
Discrete Cosine transform DCT and inverse DCT IDCT have been widely used in many image processing systems and real-time computation of nonlinear time series. In this paper, a novel lineararray of DCT and IDCT is derived from the data flow of subband decompositions representing the factorized coefficient matrices in the matrix formulation of the recursive(More)
In this paper, we propose an efficient method for rearranging the wavelet packet coefficients of an image to form hierarchical trees, by which the well known SPIHT algorithm can be applied. For images with textures, the high frequency wavelet coefficients are likely to become significant after several code passes of SPIHT, which degrades substantially the(More)
Coordinate rotation digital computer (CORDIC) is an efficient algorithm for computations of trigonometric functions. Scaling-free-CORDIC is one of the famous CORDIC implementations with advantages of speed and area. In this paper, a novel direct digital frequency synthesizer (DDFS) based on scaling-free CORDIC is presented. The proposed multiplier-less(More)
