Abstract : The increasingly demanding requirements of multimedia applications have led to the definition of complex image and video coding standards such as JPEG2000 and MPEG4. Implementation of image or video encoders or decoders on mobile device requires high integration densities together with an ability for "real-time" (on-the-fly) data processing. Today, the electronic system design community is mainly concerned with defining efficient System-on-a-Chip (SoC) design methodologies in order to benefit from the high integration capabilities of current ASIC and FPGA technologies on the one hand, and manage the increasing algorithmic complexity of applications on the other hand. Intellectual Property (IP) reuse is considered as the key to speed up the system design and verification flow and make it more reliable. In this context, we have introduced a novel methodology for VLSI implementation of computation-intensive algorithms targeting digital signal processing applications. Our methodology combines Intellectual Property (IP) reuse and High-Level Synthesis (HLS) and introduces the notion of "Behavioral IP". This approach aims at leveraging IP re-usability through functional and architectural flexibility based on: (1) modeling a component's behavior at a high abstraction level and (2) benefiting from HLS tools for architectural exploration and hardware generation.
