This article demonstrates the flexibility and usefulness of SuperENC, an architecture for a single-chip MPEG-2 video encoder. The architecture, based on three-layer cooperation, provides flexible data transfer that improves the encoder's versatility, scalability, and video quality. The LSI chip was successfully fabricated in the 0.25-micron, four-metal CMOS process. Its small size and low power consumption make it ideal for a wide range of applications, such as DVD recorders, PC card encoders, and HDTV encoders.
