Increasing system complexity of SOC applications leads to an increasing requirement on powerful embedded DSP processors. To increase the performance of DSP processors the number of parallel-executed instructions has been increased. To program the parallel units VLIW (Very Long Instruction Word) has been introduced. Traditional VLIW architectures feature(More)
