Title

Efficient Vlsi Designs For Data Transformation Of Tree-Based Codes

Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new class of VLSI architectures for data transformation of tree-based codes. We concentrate on transformation functions used for data compression and decompression. We present two algorithms: a sequential algorithm that generates the code bits serially one bit per machine cycle, and a parallel algorithm that generates the entire code bits of a symbol in one machine cycle. The algorithms use the principle of propagation of a token in a reverse binary tree constructed from the original codes. The design approaches are applicable to any binary codes, although the static Huffman code is used as an illustration. A new hardware algorithm for generating adaptive Huffman codes is proposed and a VLSI architecture for implementing the algorithm is described. The high speed of the new algorithms ensures that data transformation is done on the fly, as data are being transferred from/to high-speed I/O communication devices.
