This paper presents a high throughput and low cost architecture for motion estimation using a sub-sampled diamond search algorithm (SDS). The quality of SDS was compared with full search through software implementations and the results are presented. The designed hardware considered a search area of 100times100 samples, with blocks of 16times16 pixels. The architecture was described in VHDL and mapped to a Xilinx Virtex-4 FPGA. Synthesis results indicate that SDS is able to run at 185.7 MHz… CONTINUE READING
