In this paper, translation motion stabilization of video in embedded applications like digital still camera
(DSC), digital camcorder, and security camera is discussed. In embedded systems, computational load
and power consumption are critical parameters along with the quality of stabilization. The method and
apparatus described in this paper use boundary signal computation (BSC), a single instruction multiple
data (SIMD) core, enhanced DMA, and the ARM9EJ processor to accelerate the computations and save
power.
