An Implementation of MPEG-4 ALS Standard Compliant Decoder on ARM Core CPUs
MPEG-4 Audio Lossless Coding (ALS) is a standard that losslessly compresses audio signals in an efficient manner. MPEG-4 ALS is a suitable compression scheme for high-sound-quality portable music players. We have implemented a decoderder compliant with the MPEG-4 ALS standard on the ARM platform. In this paper, the required CPU resources for MPEG-4 ALS tools on ARM9E are characterized by using an ARM CPU emulator, called ARMulator, as a simulation platform. It is shown that the required CPU clock cycle for decoding MPEG-4 ALS standard compliant bitstreams is less than 20 MHz for 44.1-kHz-16-bit, stereo signals on ARM9E when the combination of the MPEG-4 ALS tools is properly selected and coding parameters are properly restricted.
