A flexible H.263 video coder prototype based on FPGA

Garrido González, Matías; Sanz Álvaro, César; Meneses Chaus, Juan Manuel
Resumen:
The methodology used for prototyping an H.263 video coder is explained in this paper. The coder is based on an architecture, we have called MVIP-2, which consists of a set of specialized processors for the main tasks (transforms, quantizers, motion estimation and motion compensation) and a RISC processor for the scheduling tasks. The design has been written in synthesizable Verilog and fully tested with hardware-software co-simulation using standard video sequences. All modules except the RISC has been synthesized and fitted onto an EP20K400BC652 FPGA from Altera. At present we are testing the prototype in real-time using a commercial board with the RISC and the FPGA, a pattern generator and data acquisition system to generate the input sequences and to read the reconstructed ones, as well as a logic analyzer. The methodological aspects presented in this paper can be applied to other designs.
