Due to recent wireless market explosion it is forecastable that in a near future, mobile terminals will deploy voice as well as true multimedia services. In this framework the need for low-power, multimedia oriented IP is felt. In particular since the greater part of video coding standards rely on common functionalities it is very important to develop a library of parametric IP. The main aim of this paper work is to discuss a parametric architecture for Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT). The
