Abstract
This paper presents a VLIW co-processor template for smart imaging. The template is highly scalable and can easily be instantiated for a specific data level parallelism. The co-processor is built to operate on frame segments instead of full frames only. As a result, eight different instances of the co-processor have been generated, each with different amount of parallelism exploited. Each instance is generated in about 30 minutes using C-based high-level synthesis tools. The generated co-processors have been evaluated and the result shows that the template can be effectively used to balance the area, performance and power consumption with respect to the application requirements.
