Abstract:This thesis describes the advantages and disadvantages of using an architecture consisting of different (types of) processors. These architectures are called heterogeneous architectures. We focus on advantages and disadvantages in processing power and energy-efficiency. We examined these by mapping MPEG-4 on a heterogeneous architecture consisting of an General Purpose Processor (GPP) and a reconfigurable processor architecture. The used GPP is an ARM and the reconfigurable architecture a MONTIUM. We analysed the MPEG-4 algorithms and the characteristics of multi-processor architectures to decide on what processor type the algorithms can be executed best.
