A JPEG Encoder in SystemC

Abstract [en]

This thesis evaluates how SystemC, an open source system level modeling language, may improve system design. A gap exists in current design workflow, which causes an unnatural interrupt between high-level and low- level modeling. A common ground for software and hardware development is also absent in present design methodologies, which decreases the chances for successful co-operation between project members. As a part of this investigation, a JPEG encoder has been modeled in SystemC. A software prototype of the JPEG encoder has later been implemented on an ARM Integrator platform. Based on these experiences, a proposal for a complete system design flow, incorporating SystemC, has been made. The design flow spans from Algorithmic level down to Register Transfer Level. The essence of the design flow is SystemC in conjunction with Transaction Level Modeling, which not only provides solutions to overcome the limitations of traditional design, but also introduces new possibilities.
