The stream processing characteristics of many embedded system applications in multimedia and networking domains have led to the advent of stream based programming formats. Several multicore processors aimed at embedded domains incorporate Scratch-Pad Memories (SPM) due to their superior power consumption characteristics. The paper addresses the problem of compiling stream programs on to multicore processors that incorporate SPM. Performance optimization on SPM based processors requires effective schemes for software based management of code and/or data overlay.
