Hardware-Aware Rate Monotonic Scheduling Algorithm for Embedded Multimedia Systems

Many embedded multimedia systems employ special hardware blocks to co-process with the main processor. Even though an efficient handling of such hardware blocks is critical on the overall performance of real-time multimedia systems, traditional real-time scheduling techniques cannot afford to guarantee a high quality of multimedia playbacks with neither delay nor jerking. This paper presents a Hardware-Aware Rate Monotonic Scheduling (HA-RMS) algorithm to manage hardware tasks efficiently and handle special hardware blocks in the embedded multimedia system.
