Small signal model for low power DSP

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


We describe a technique which reduces power consumption in pipelined DSP circuits by mapping full precision operations to small precision operations, using adaptive delta modulation to reduce the signal size. The discrete cosine transform example is evaluated considering issues such as power, area, delay, latency, accuracy of the system and the sampling frequency of the signal.
