Paper abstract
A data-adaptive motion estimation algorithm and its low-power VLSI implementation are presented in this paper. Basically, the proposed technique exploits the input data variations to dynamically reconfigure the search window size of an exhaustive block-matching search. As proved by computer simulations, the same high performance of the conventional full-search approach is achieved for a remarkable reduction of the circuit power consumption.
