14.9. Application-Driven Architecture Design

In this section, we consider characterization of applications and architectures. Trace-driven simulation is widely used to evaluate computer architectures and are useful in MPSoC design. Because we know more about the application code to be executed on an application-specific MPSoC design, we can use execution traces to refine the design, starting with capturing fairly general characteristics of the application and moving toward a more detailed study of the application running on a refined architectural model.

Because video applications are computationally intensive, we expect that more than one platform SoC will be necessary to build video systems for quite some time. For some relatively simple applications, ...
