Using Handel-C to design complex hardware: the right tool can make decoding simpler
Keywords and Phrases
"When designing complex computer and electronic hardware, designers using traditional tools such as VHDL have difficulty meeting design cycle demands because of the intense coding effort required. High-level languages specialized for hardware endeavor to alleviate these pressures by facilitating accelerated design cycles. This thesis tests the ability of one of the most promising of these languages, Handel-C, to accelerate design cycles by using it to design four components of multimedia: a Lempel-Ziv compression algorithm, a BitMaP image decoder, a waveform sound file decoder, and a JPEG decoder"--Abstract, leaf iii.
