Within the last five years, the notion of Multi-Processor System-on-Chip (MPSoC) has transformed from paper-based block diagrams to prototypes for very few cases, even to real hardware. This evolution is spectacular not only in its very fast pace, but also in the mindset changes that it involves. Processor architects have shifted their focus from increasing processor frequency to increasing processor functionality. As a result, processors are no longer based on a single very fast, very complex core, but rather built-up from multiple, simpler cores, that can achieve higher processing power by working in parallel.
