Multi-core architectures have recently attracted substantial attention because of the increasing difficulty to push processor core speeds beyond the few GHz mark already reached some years back. This paper presents a multi-core SoC architecture for consumer multimedia applications. The comprehensive functionality of such multimedia systems is described using the example of a hybrid TV application. The successful usage of a heterogeneous multi-core SoC platform is presented and it is shown how specific challenges such as inter-processor communication and real-time performance guarantees in physically centralized memory systems are addressed.
