Heterogeneous reconfigurable processing architectures are often limited by the speed at which they can access data in external memory. Such architectures are designed for flexibility to support a broad range of target applications, including advanced algorithms with significant processing and data requirements. Clearly, strong performance of applications in this category is an extremely relevant metric for demonstrating the full performance potential of heterogeneous computing platforms. One such example, a film grain noise reduction application for high-definition video, which is composed of multiple image processing tasks, requires enormous data rates due to its large input image size and real-time processing constraints.
