Deriving a custom architecture for H.264 video compression based motion estimation is a complex hardware design problem. The problem is complicated by the plethora of design options in the H.264 standard. To derive an efficient architecture, the designer must select between suitable algorithms, allocate computational resources to a custom datapath(More)
FPOAs are reconfigurable devices similar to FPGAs but offer a much higher level of abstraction than the gate level. The main advantage of FPOAs is their deterministic on chip network, which guarantees that an application executes at the design frequency. Mathstar's current toolflow requires constant manual guidance to place and route a design. In this paper(More)
