Fractional Motion Estimation (FME) in highdefinition H.264 presents a significant design challenge in terms of memory bandwidth, latency and area cost as there are various modes and complex mode decision flow, which require over 45% of the computation complexity in the H.264 encoding process. In this paper, a new highperformance VLSI architecture for Fractional Motion Estimation (FME) in H.264/AVC based on the full-search algorithm is presented. This architecture is made up of three different… CONTINUE READING
