Context-based adaptive variable-length coding
(CAVLC) is a new and important feature of the latest video
coding standard, H.264/AVC. The direct VLSI implementation
of CAVLC modified from the conventional run-length coding
architecture will lead to low throughput and utilization. In this
brief, an efficient CAVLC design is proposed. The main concept
is the two-stage block pipelining scheme for parallel processing of
two 4 4 blocks. When one block is processed by the scanning
engine to collect the required symbols, its previous block is handled
by the coding engine to translate symbols into bitstream. Our
dual-block-pipelined architecture doubles the throughput and
utilization of CAVLC at high bit rates. Moreover, a zero skipping
technique is adopted to reduce up to 90% of cycles at low bit rates.
Last but not least, Exp-Golomb coding for other general symbols
and bitstream encapsulation for the network abstraction layer
are integrated with CAVLC as a complete H.264/AVC baseline
profile entropy coder. Simulation shows that our design is capable
of real-time processing for 1920 1088 30-fps videos with 23.6 K
logic gates at 100 MHz.
