This paper examines low power design techniques for discrete cosine transform (DCT) and inverse discrete cosine transform (IDCT) circuits applicable for low bit rate wireless video systems. The techniques include skipping DCT computation of low energy macroblocks, skipping IDCT computation of blocks with all coefficients equal to zero, using lower precision constant multipliers, gating the clock, and reducing transitions in the data path. The proposed DCT and IDCT circuits reduce power dissipation by, on average, 94% over baseline reference circuits.
