A novel IC design methodology, named Operator Methodology (OM), is proposed in this paper and has been applied to intra prediction of H.264 entropy coding, satisfying the need of 1080P@30pfs performance. This new methodology will map the high-level language, such as C programming language, to verilog HDL through a special middle language, using a series of analysis processes like time-noting and optimization. The implementation of intra prediction in H.264 by OM, which is verified to work at 100MHZ in a Xilinx Virtex6 FPGA and 0.13um SMIC CMOS technology at 167MHz frequency, shows that OM can speed up IC design effectively and obtain comparable performance with other ASIC results. Finally, our design cycle, measured by man-month, will be decreased by a large scale using auto-translator and auto-optimizer.
