Today's high performance embedded computing applications are posing significant challenges for processing throughout. Traditionally, such applications have been realized on Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) and/or Digital Signal Processors (DSP). However, ASICs' advantage in performance and power often could not justify the fast increasing fabrication cost, while current DSP offers a limited processing throughput that is usually lower than 100GFLOPS. On the other hand, current multi-core processors, especially Graphics Processing Units (GPUs), deliver very high computing throughput, and at the same time maintain high flexibility and programmability.
