—The design of embedded hardware/software systems is often subject to strict requirements concerning its various aspects, including real-time performance, power consumption, and die area. Especially for data intensive applications, the number of memory accesses is a dominant factor for these aspects. In order to meet the requirements and design a(More)
This contribution presents a powerful method for real-time capable global motion estimation. Up to now no further solutions are known to the authors. Global motion estimation is a great tool in MPEG-4 coding process to improve overall visual quality. The main disadvantage of the reference implementation in the current Verification Model is an unacceptable(More)
The main goals of the 2PARMA project are: the definition of a parallel programming model combining component-based and single-instruction multiple-thread approaches, instruction set virtualisation based on portable byte-code, run-time resource management policies and mechanisms as well as design space exploration methodologies for many-core computing(More)
The design of embedded hardware/software systems is often underlying strict requirements concerning various aspects, including real time performance, power consumption and die area. Especially for data intensive applications, such as multimedia systems, the number of memory accesses is a dominant factor for these aspects. In order to meet the requirements(More)
The trend in computing architectures is currently replacing complex superscalar architectures with meshes of small homogeneous processing units connected by an on-chip network. This trend is mostly driven by inherent silicon technology frontiers, which are getting as closer as the process densities levels increase. The number of cores to be integrated in a(More)
Streaming media distribution is a rapidly growing application. The increasing number of broadband internet subscribers, the growing market for smart in-home networks and the upcoming broadband mobile phone networks encourage this trend. In addition , the number of multimedia enabled mobile devices such as PDAs, smart embedded devices and notebooks is(More)
— The new DVB-H standard allows broadcasting of audio/video content to mobile terminals. Such devices underlie severe restrictions concerning processing load and power consumption. The most computational intensive and therewith most power consuming part of such terminals is the decoding of the H.264/AVC video datastream. We present optimization strategies(More)
