Title: Method and apparatus for truncated decoding

Abstract: A method and apparatus for hardware efficient decoding of compression coefficients. In one embodiment, a numerator of an equation used to compute a compression coefficient is computed. The denominator is also computed. The numerator and denominator values are truncated such that each numerator and denominator are equal in length to a predetermined constant K. A K-bit integer division is then executed to determine the value of the compression constant.
