With the recent advances in video applications such as video teleconferencing, HDTV, etc., there is an increasing demand for a high-performance processor to implement JPEG, MPEG, and H.264 coding/decoding. A VLSI based DSP-coprocessor architecture is proposed in this article. The chip was implemented using SYNOPSYS tools and can yield a clock rate of about 300 MHz. JPEG decoding is tested on this novel DSP. The chip architecture and the test result are shown in detail in this article.
