In this paper, we propose a novel hardware architecture to facilitate the applicable SoC chip design of H.264/SVC which has a great deal of advancement in the international standardization in recent. Moreover, a new C-model simulator based on the proposed hardware system will be presented to support optimal SoC circuit development. Since the proposed SVC decoder is consist of some hardware engine for processing of major decoding tools and core processor for software processing, the system is simply implemented with the conventional embedded system. To improve the feasibility and applicability, and reduce the decoder complexity, the hardware decoder architecture is constructed with only the consideration of IPPP structure scalability without using the full B-picture. Finally, we present results of decoder hardware implementation and decoded picture to show the effectiveness of the proposed hardware architecture and C-model simulator.
