Processor-based solutions are getting increasingly popular over dedicated logic/accelerators among embedded system designers due to their flexibility and programmability. The drawbacks - weaker performance and higher power consumption - are usually compensated with multicore and application-specific technologies. Unfortunately, these optimizations - exploiting parallelism and heterogeneity - lead to direction that makes programming difficult and result to less flexible designs. REPLICA is VTT's… CONTINUE READING
