We present a design case study of hardware implementation and verification environment creation for a system on chip video encoder based on ARM processors. The design problem was focused on the development of an appropriate verification platform at RTL level for merging the software and the hardware parts of the application in a prototype corresponding to the high level system model and specification requirements. The paper describes the hardware architecture implementation around AMBA bus using IP components integration methodology and the appropriate verification environment using an ARM9E-S design simulation model.
