Abstract

In this paper, a high performance lossless color image compression and decompression architecture to reduce both memory requirement and bandwidth is proposed. The proposed architecture consists of differential-differential pulse coded modulation (DDPCM) and Golomb-Rice coding. The original image frame is organized as m by &n sub-window arrays, to which DDPCM is applied to produce one seed and m× n-1 pieces of differential data. Then the differential data are encoded using the Golomb-Rice algorithm to produce losslessly compressed data. According to the experimental results on benchmark images, the proposed architecture can guarantee high enough compression rate and throughput to perform real-time lossless CODEC operations with a reasonable hardware area.
