Computing unto 100GOPS without cooling is essential for high-end embedded systems and much required by markets. A novel master-slave multi-SIMD architecture and its kernel (template) based parallel programming flow is thus introduced as a parallel signal processing platform, ePUMA, embedded Parallel DSP processor with Unique Memory Access. It is an on Chip Multi-Processor (CMP) targeting to predictable signal processing for communications and multimedia. The essential technologies are to separate the processing of control stream from parallel computing, and to separate parallel data access from parallel arithmetic computing kernels.
