Abstract

Development of multimedia systems on heterogeneous platforms is a challenging task with existing design tools due to a lack of rigorous integration between high level abstract modeling, and low level synthesis and analysis. In this paper, we present a new dataflow-based design tool, called the targeted dataflow interchange format (TDIF), for design, analysis, and implementation of embedded software for multimedia systems. Our approach provides novel capabilities, based on the principles of task-level dataflow analysis, for exploring and optimizing interactions across application behavior; operational context; heterogeneous platforms, including high performance embedded processing architectures; and implementation constraints.
