Summary: 
This paper presents two power-saving designs for Quadratic Polynomial Permutation (QPP) interleave address generator of which interleave length K is fixed and unfixed, respectively. These designs are based on our observation that the quadratic term f2x2%K of f(x) = (f1x+f2x2)%K, which is the QPP address generating function, has a short period and is symmetric within the period. Power consumption is reduced by 27.4% in the design with fixed-K and 5.4% in the design with unfixed-K on the average for various values of K, when compared with existing designs.
