VLSI architecture with flexible, application-specific coprocessors for object based video encoding/decoding is presented. This architecture combines high performance of dedicated ASIC architectures with the flexibility of programmable processors. Dataflow and memory access were optimized based on extensive studies of statistical complexity variations.
The architecture consists of a standard embedded core, as well as coprocessor modules for macroblock algorithms, motion estimation and bitstream processing. Results on silicon area and clock rate, required for realtime processing of MPEG-4 Core Profile video, are presented, as well as a comparison with software implementations on a standard RISC architecture.


He received the Dipl.-Ing. and Dr.-Ing. degrees in electrical engineering from the Technical University of Munich, Germany, in 1983 and 1988, respectively. In 1990 he joined Kontron Elektronik GmbH, a German electronic company, where he was responsible for the ASIC and PCB design departement. Since 1993 he has been Director of Research at the Institute for Integrated Circuits at the Technical University of Munich. His interests include digital video signal processing and VLSI design, with focus on system-on-chip design methodology and low power implementation for mobile multimedia.
