The application-specific multiprocessor system-on-a chip is a promising design alternative because of its high degree of flexibility, short development time, and potentially high performance attributed to application-specific optimizations. However, designing an optimal application-specific multiprocessor system is still challenging because there are a number of important metrics, such as throughput, latency, and resource usage, which need to be explored and optimized. This paper addresses the problem of synthesizing an application-specific multiprocessor system for stream-oriented embedded applications to minimize system latency under the throughput constraint.
