Embedded Multi-Core Systems Dedicated to Dynamic Dataflow Programs

Abstract : Multimedia applications and embedded plat-forms are both becoming very complex in order to im-prove user experience. Thus, multimedia developers need high-level methods to automate time-consuming and error-prone tasks. Dynamic dataflow modeling is at-tractive to describe complex applications, such as video codecs, at a high level of abstraction. This paper presents a dataflow-based design approach to implement video codecs on embedded multi-core platforms. First, we in-troduce a custom architecture model to design low-power multi-core chips based on distributed memory and Transport-Triggered Architecture processor cores. Then, we describe software synthesis techniques to im-prove dynamic dataflow implementations. This method-ology has been implemented into open-source tools and demonstrated on video decoders based on the MPEG-4 Visual standard and the new High Efficiency Video Coding standard. The simulations achieve real-time de-coding (40FPS) of high definition (720P) MPEG-4 Vi-sual video sequences on a custom multi-core platform clocked at 1Ghz, which is an improvement of more than 100% over previously proposed implementations.
