AbstractThis paper presents the evaluation and implementation of an 8-bit adaptable processor core to be part of the power-throughput-area efficient multimedia oriented reconfigurable architecture reconfigurable. The processor core  design was custom implemented in IBM’s 90 nm CMOS technology and occupies 0.115 mm2 silicon area with approximately 70% area utilized by core circuits and it shows a peak throughput performance of 75 MOPS/m W. The result of benchmarking results show estimated throughputs of 9.5, 21.36, 39.78,170.88,and 4.54 MSamples/s for variants of 2-D discrete cosine transform (DCT), 4 × 4 H.264 integer   transform and 2-D discrete wavelet transform, respectively. When compared against popular architecture, our analysis shows that the proposed design provides approximately 4–8 times higher throughput for 2-D DCT.
