Welcome to the H-QuAD Project!

This project intends to develop a FLAC audio decoder implemented entirely in hardware.  This decoder core will be capable or decoding lossless, CD-quality audio at data rates much faster than real-time.

The initial design has been targeted on an Altera Cyclone II FPGA. Our design runs at speeds faster than the system clock and memory, and consumes approximately 4000 Logic Elements.
