IEEE Trans. Multimedia june 1999, page 121, analog RAM chip
video conferencing cameras for mpeg4,
for optical flow.
16 by 256 analog memory chip. 7 bits dynamic range, runs at 5MHz
best for high bandwidth repetitive tasks
small images e.g. (50 by 50 pixels).
multiplexing in areas of pixels they calculate the transforms on, invariant codings, fourier transform, edge detection.
