Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) is used in JPEG compression, image encryption, image watermarking and channel estimation. In this paper, an Application Specific Processor (ASP) for DCT based applications is designed and implemented to Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). One dimensional DCT and IDCT hardwares which have fully parallel architecture have been implemented and connected to MicroBlaze softcore processer. To show a basic application of ASP, DCT based image watermarking example is studied in this system.
