Abstract

Programming models based on dataflow or process networks are a good match for streaming applications, common in the signal processing, multimedia and automotive domains. In such models, parallelism is expressed explicitly which makes them well-suited for programming parallel machines. Since today s applications are no longer static, expressive programming models are needed, such as those based on Kahn Process Networks (KPNs). In these models, tasks cannot be handled as black boxes, but have to be analyzed, profiled and traced to characterize their behavior. This is especially important in the case of heterogenous platforms with many processors of multiple different types. This presentation describes a tool flow to handle KPN applications and gives insights into mapping algorithms for heterogeneous platforms.
