Overview

One of the driving application domains for future mobile terminals is multimedia applications exemplified by video and high-quality audio processing as well as advanced games. These applications do not only require high peak performance levels, they also impose stringent real-time demands to provide a high user-perceived quality of service. At the same time, future mobile terminals must also accommodate other applications with a wide range of computational requirements that rule out a special-purpose computer infrastructure. What makes the design of the architecture of this infrastructure even more challenging is that it also must meet stringent constraints on area and power dissipation.

In this research project, our goal is to investigate design principles of a general-purpose single-chip processor/memory architecture that can provide high and predictable performance for multimedia applications under challenging constraints regarding chip area and power dissipation.
