This paper presents an efficient implementation of a convolution-based 1D discrete wavelet transform (DWT). The proposed architecture combines several optimizations that improve the performance of the hardware design in terms of throughput and power dissipation. We designed and analyzed the performance of numerous DWT architectures using pertinent metrics and cost functions that assess the impact of the design optimizations. We synthesized our VLSI architectures using a 0.18 mu standard cell… CONTINUE READING
