Motivational example: MPEG-2 encoder design

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


While NoCs gained recently a significant momentum, there are few NoC implementations of real applications reported to date. In this chapter, we present an MPEG-2 encoder using the NoC approach and compare it against the P2P and non-segmented bus-based designs running the same application. The MPEG-2 encoder has been selected as driver application since it covers a rich class of multimedia applications where similar considerations apply from an implementation standpoint.
