Parallel platforms are becoming predominant in the embedded systems space due to a variety of factors. These platforms can deliver high peak performance if they can be programmed effectively. However, current sequential software design techniques as well as the Single Program Multiple Data (SPMD) programming models often used in the High Performance Computing (HPC) domain are insufficient. In this report, we experiment with a dataflow programming model for multimedia embedded systems. By applying this programming model to a common application and embedded platform, we get a better idea of the implementation challenges for this class of systems.
