- In this paper, we present a high-performance VC-1 main-profile decoder for high-definition (HD) video applications, which can decode HD 720p video streams with 30 fps at 90 MHz. We implemented the decoder with a one-poly eight-metal 0.13 mu m CMOS process, which contains about 261,900 logic gates and on-chip memories of 13.9 KB SRAM and 13.1 KB ROM and occupies an area of about 5.1 mm(2). In designing, the VC-1 decoder, we used a template-based SoC design flow, with which we performed the design space exploration of the decoder by trying various configurations of communication channels. Moreover, we also describe architectures of the computation blocks optimized to satisfy the requirements of VC-1 HID applications.
