In this paper, the authors describe a rapid design methodology to create a pipeline of processers to execute streaming applications. The methodology is in two separate phases: the first phase, uses a heuristic to rapidly search through a large number of processor configurations (configurations differ by the base processor, the additional instructions and cache sizes) to find the near Pareto front; the second phase, utilizes either the above heuristic or an ILP (Integer Linear Programming) formulation to search a smaller design space to find an appropriate final implementation.
