Title

Using Handel-C to design complex hardware: the right tool can make decoding simpler

Keywords and Phrases

Handel-C

Abstract

"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.
