A programmable DSP with linear array architecture for real-time video processing is reported. It achieves a processing rate of 5. 4 GOPS and 81GB/s memory bandwidth using Dual Sense Amplifier architecture. A low-power-supply pipeline decreases power consumption and a time shared bit-line reduces chip area. It has 4320 processor elements and a 1. 1 Mbit 3-port memory. The DSP can be applied to HDTV signals with its 75 MHz peak I/O rate. Sufficient programmability is provided to execute video format conversion such as image size conversion and Y/C separation, and picture quality improvement such as noise reduction and image enhancement. The chip was fabricated using 0. 4 µm CMOS triple metal technology with a 15. 12 mm 14. 95 mm die. It operates at 50 MHz and consumes 0. 53 W/GOPS at 3. 3 V.
