Presented here is an analytical methodology to determine the average signal activity, T, from the high-level signal statistics, a statistical signal generation model, and the signal encoding. Simulation results for 16 bit signals generated via AR(1) and MA(1) models indicate an estimation error in T of less than 2%. The application of the proposed method to the estimation of T in DSP hardware is also explained.
