Abstract

Various video compression applications are currently using variations of DCT algorithms. One such application is a consumer video phone over analog phone lines using the PV2TM video compression algorithm. An application specific video codec IC, called SAM, was developed and it works with AT&T's DSP 1616 processor for performing all the digital video processing functions required by the video phone. SAM chip was designed and fabricated using AT&T's 0.9 μm double-level metal CMOS process and has been successfully tested in a proto-type system. Presented in this paper is the algorithm and system requirements followed by a description of the ASIC's architecture. The results are summarized.
