Modelling and implementation of an MPEG-2 video decoder using a GALS design path.
Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 20 points / 30 hpStudent thesis
As integrated circuits get smaller, faster and can fit more functionality, more problems arise with wire delays and cross-talk. Especially when using global clock signals distributed over a large chip area. This thesis will briefly discuss a solution to this problem using the Globally Asynchronous Locally Synchronous (GALS) design path.
The goal of this thesis was to test the solution by modelling and partially implementing an MPEG-2 video decoder connected as a GALS system, using synchronous design tools. This includes design of the system in Simulink, implementing selected parts in VHDL and finally testing the connected parts on an FPGA. Presented in this thesis is the design and implementation of the system as well as theory on the MPEG-2 video decoding standard and a short analysis of the result.
