This API is decoder supports the ‘Sequential DCT-based mode’ of ISO/IEC 10918-1 standard. It is a high-performance implementation based-on Xilinx HLS design methodolygy. It can process 1 Huffman token and create up to 8 DCT coeffiects within one cycle. It is also an easy-to-use decoder as it can direct parser the JPEG file header without help of software functions.

As an independent IP, L1 API is the key circuit of L2 API. L2 API runs as a kernel demo, which can also show the overall performance of the circuit.

It can be seen from the benchmark of the API that the decoding speed of huffman decoder(L1 IP) is usually faster than that of iDCT(in L2 kernel). In practical applications, jpeg decoder is often used as the front module of the entire codec board.
