Benchmarks and Results



In this chapter, the adaptive low-power application and processor architectures are benchmarked. The evaluation and analysis of the individual parts of the proposed adaptive low-power application and processor architecture are already presented in Chap. 4 and 5, respectively. The first section will provide benchmarks for different algorithms at the Mode Decision and Motion Estimation levels for realizing adaptive low-power video coding. These algorithms are compared with different state-of-the-art fast and adaptive approaches. This section additionally provides the comparison with the exhaustive Rate Distortion Optimized Mode Decision (RDO-MD) and exhaustive search algorithms to benchmark against the optimal quality as it is typically done by the related work, too. The second section benchmarks the adaptive low-power reconfigurable processor architecture (with energy management scheme) against state-of-the-art reconfigurable processor. The following two different types of dynamically reconfigurable processor architectures are considered for comparison.
