Coarse-grained reconfigurable architectures have become increasingly important in recent years. Automatic design or compilation tools are essential to their success. In this paper, we present a modulo scheduling algorithm to exploit loop-level parallelism for coarse-grained reconfigurable architectures. This algorithm is a key part of our Dynamically(More)
Coarse-grained reconfigurable architectures have become increasingly important in recent years. Automatic design or compiling tools are essential to their success. In this paper, we present a retargetable compiler for a family of coarse-grained reconfigurable architectures. Several key issues are addressed. Program analysis and transformation prepare(More)
Coarse-grained reconfigurable architectures have seen growing importance recently. Design tools and methodology are essential to their success. Based on our previous work on modulo scheduling algorithms and a novel architecture with tightly coupled VLIW/reconfigurable matrix, we present a C-based design flow using an MPEG-2 decoder as a design example. The(More)
Multimedia support appears on embedded platforms, such as WAP for mobile phones. However, true multimedia applications require both the computation power that only dedicated hardware can provide and the flexibility of software implementations. To this end, we are investigating reconfigurable architectures, composed of an instruction-set processor running(More)
Although many fast stereo matching designs have been proposed in the past decades, it is still very challenging to achieve real-time speed at high definition resolution while maintaining high matching accuracy. In this paper, we propose a real-time high definition stereo matching design on FPGA. By using the Mini-Census transform and the Cross-based cost(More)
In this paper the design problems encountered when designing heterogeneous systems are studied and solutions to these problems are proposed. It will be shown why a single heterogeneous specification method ranging from concept to architecture is required and why it should cover issues as modularity, design for reuse, reuse of designs and reuse of design(More)
