Currently ASIC applications, such as multimedia processing, require shorter time-to-market and lower cost of Non Recurring Engineering (NRE). Also, with the IC manufacturing technology developing continually, from transistor level to logic gate level, the size of design cells in digital circuits is increasing correspondingly. New design methodology is in urgent need to meet the requirement for the developing processing technology and shorter time-to-market in IC industry. This paper proposed the concepts and principles of operator design methodology, then focused on the entropy coding application based on the operators and finally presented the implementation results. The results show that with the proposed methodology, a comparable hardware performance can be obtained against the traditional standard cell based design flow. Furthermore, the design speed can be improved efficiently.
