H.264/AVC is newest video coding standard of the ITU-T Video coding Experts Group and the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Expets Group. Recently H.264/AVC has been adopted as a video compression standard in DMB and multimedia equipments. In this paper, we propose a H.264/AVC intra frame decoder which can minimize the memory usage and chip size. The proposed intra frame decoder is described in VHDL language and simulated in model_sim. It was verified in chip level by downloading to XCV1000E FPGA chip.
