Abstract

Wireless multimedia communication systems become increasingly more computational intensive and demand for higher flexibility. The realization of these systems on reconfigurable hardware offers a good balance for these requirements. In this paper the suitability of commercially available reconfigurable hardware platforms for the target application domain is evaluated. Based on this evaluation a heterogeneous partly reconfigurable system-on-chip platform is identified as ideal implementation platform for the targeted systems. Systems from different target domains are analysed and different cases where the inclusion of reconfigurable hardware in their realizations would lead to improved quality in terms of implementation efficiency and flexibility are identified. Design methodology requirements for the realization of systems from the target application domain on the targeted platform are analysed and issues not covered by existing methodologies are identified. The principles of a methodology handling these open issues are described. Results from the prototyping of different systems are also presented and show the potentials of a reconfigurable hardware platform, which in the future will lead to reduced costs and increased flexibility of the wireless multimedia communication systems.
