Nowadays, System-on-Chip (SoC) systems are becoming more and more complex and
need more time to model, simulate and verification. To reduce the complexity of the system
and to boost development time, a new design methodology is required. Along with SystemC
library, multi-level abstraction design methodology is proposed as the key concept in SoC
design. In this paper, the authors apply this methodology to model and simulate a JPEG
encoder using the combination of SystemC and VHDL to explore the architecture and ...
