A MPEG Decoder in SHIM

Joshi, Keerti; Kellebrew, Delvin

The emergence of world-wide standards for video compression has created a demand for design tools and simulation resources to support algorithm research and new product development. Because of the need for subjective study in the design of video compression algorithms it is essential that flexible yet computationally efficient tools be developed. For this project, we plan to implement a MPEG standard using the SHIM programming language. The SHIM is a software/hardware integration language whose aim is to provide communication between hardware and software while providing deterministic concurrency. The focus of this project will be to emphasize the efficiency of the SHIM language in embedded applications as compared to other existing implementations.
