Paper Abstract

With the increase of the complex of VLSI such as the SoC (System on Chip) of MPEG-2 Video decoder with HDTV scalability especially, simulation and verification of the full design, even as high as the behavior level in HDL, often proves to be very slow, costly and it is difficult to perform full verification until late in the design process. Therefore, they become bottleneck of the procedure of HDTV video decoder design, and influence it's time-to-market mostly. In this paper, the architecture of Hardware/Software Interface of HDTV video decoder is studied, and a Hardware-Software Mixed Simulation (HSMS) platform is proposed to check and correct error in the early design stage, based on the algorithm of MPEG-2 video decoding. The application of HSMS to target system could be achieved by employing several introduced approaches. Those approaches speed up the simulation and verification task without decreasing performance.
