Coprocessor Approach to Accelerating Multimedia Applications

  • Claudio Brunelli
  • Jari Nurmi

In this chapter, we describe a coprocessor approach to accelerating applications. We are concentrating on multimedia applications as an illustrative example of where this approach can be applied. In everyday life we all deal with a number of integrated digital systems which are present into almost all the products for consumer electronics. The heart of those systems is usually a microprocessor core, which is mainly used to control all the other components.
