Variable block-size motion estimation (VBSME) has become an important technique in H.264/AVC to improve video quality. In this paper, we propose a scalable VLSI architecture for VBSME in H.264/AVC based on full-search motion estimation algorithm. The proposed architecture reuses the sum of absolute differences (SAD) to reduce the calculation complexity, thus minimizes the number of registers. A new scan order is introduced to produce the distributed SAD outputs, so the number of output buses is… CONTINUE READING
