This paper proposes an efficient architecture, which combines the context-based adaptive variable length coding (CAVLC) decoder and inverse quantization (IQ) together to simplify the H.264/AVC decoder. The IQ function is effectively moved to the run before stage in the CAVLC decoder. With this efficient arrangement, it can easily implement the interface between CAVLC decoder and IQ without additional logic circuit. However, the authors also use pipeline skill to improve the performance. Because… CONTINUE READING
