To drastically reduce the power dissipation (P) of an absolute difference accumulation (ADA) circuit for H.26x/MPEG4 motion estimation, a fast block-matching (BM) algorithm called the Multiple Block-matching Step (MBS) algorithm has been developed. The MBS algorithm can drastically improve the block matching speed, while achieving the same visual quality as that of a full search (FS) BM algorithm. Power dissipation (P) of a 0.18-µm CMOS absolute difference accumulator (ADA) circuit employing the MBS algorithm is significantly reduced to the range of about 0.3% to 12% that of the same ADA circuit adopting FS.
