This paper presents an implementation of a fast two-dimensional inverse Discrete Cosine Transform (IDCT) with multimedia instructions for a software MPEG2 de-coder. IDCT algorithms for sparse blocks which eliminate the calculation for zero coefficients are realized by using multimedia instructions. To reduce the cycle count for IDCT, an adaptive control… (More)
Presented here is MPEG-2 AAC LC Profile encoder software for an Intel Pentium III processor. MDCT and quantization processing are accelerated by the use of SIMD instructions. Psycho-acoustic analysis in the MDCT domain makes the use of FFTs unnecessary. Better sound quality is provided by greater efficiency in quantization processing and Huffman coding. All… (More)
Presented here is MPEG-2 AAC decoder software for a low-power embedded RISC microprocessor, NEC VS30 (300mW @133MHz). Fast processing methods for IMDCT reduce execution time by 41% and help achieve real-time decoding of a 5.1-channel audio signal, while using only 64.7% of processor capacity.
We have developed a new-generation, general-purpose digital signal processor (DSP) core with low power dissipation for use in third-generation (3G) mobile terminals. The DSP core employs a 4-way VLIW (very long instruction word) approach, as well as a dual-multiply-accumulate (dual-MAC) architecture with good orthogonality. It is able to perform both video… (More)
Real-time operation of signal processing applications on multimedia RISC processors is often limited by high instruction cache miss rates of direct-mapped caches. In this paper, a heuristic approach is presented which reduces high instruction cache miss rates in direct-mapped caches by code positioning. The proposed algorithm rearranges functions in memory… (More)
