H.264 video standard achieves high quality video along with high data compression when compared to other existing video standards. H.264 uses context-based adaptive variable length coding (CAVLC) to code residual data in Baseline profile. In this paper, we describe a novel architecture for CAVLC decoder, including coeff token decoder, level de-coder, total(More)
Emerging embedded applications are based on evolving standards (e.g., MPEG2/4, H.264/265, IEEE802.11a/b/g/n). Since most of these applications run on handheld devices, there is an increasing need for a single chip solution that can dynamically interoperate between different standards and their derivatives. In order to achieve high resource utilization and(More)
In this paper we explore an implementation of a high-throughput, streaming application on REDEFINE-v2, which is an enhancement of REDEFINE. REDEFINE is a polymorphic ASIC combining the flexibility of a programmable solution with the execution speed of an ASIC. In REDEFINE Compute Elements are arranged in an 8x8 grid connected via a Network on Chip (NoC)(More)
Research on High-Level Synthesis has mainly focused on applications with statically determinable characteristics and current tools often perform poorly in presence of data-dependent memory accesses. The reason is that they rely on conservative static scheduling strategies, which lead to inefficient implementations. In this work, we propose to address this(More)
