An 8.6 mW stream processor core for mobile applications is implemented with 8.91 mm2 area in 0.18 mum CMOS technology at 50 MHz. The adaptive multi-thread architecture with configurable memory array and geometry-content-aware technique are proposed to reduce power consumption while achieving 12.5 Mvertices/s for 3D graphics and motion estimation with search range {H[-24,24),V[-16,16]} for CIF (352times288) 30 fps video encoding.
