Eight point transforms play an important role in data compression, signal analysis and signal enhancement applications. Most widely used transforms of size -8 are Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT), Discrete Wavelet Transform(DWT), Discrete Sine Transform(DST) and Discrete Fourier Transform. There have been applications requiring multiple transforms for improving the performance. Unified/Hybrid architectures supporting multiple transforms is a possible solution for such demands as independent architecture for each transform requires more resources and computation power. In this work, a Distributed Arithmetic (DA) based multi-transform architecture for supporting 1-D 8-point DCT, DFT, DST and DWT is proposed. A multiplier less architecture leading to reduced hardware is implemented in 45┬Ám CMOS technology in Cadence RTL compiler as well as on FPGA using Xilinx ISE. Compared to the standalone transform architectures, there is 51.2% savings in number of adders, 44.34% saving in Look Up Table(LUT) utilization and 54.18% savings in register utilization in the proposed architecture.
