Using VLIW softcore processors for image processing applications
Abstract—The ever-increasing complexity of advanced highresolution image processing applications requires innovative solutions to ensure addressing this issue efficiently and cost effectively. This paper discusses the utilization of reconfigurable generalpurpose softcore processors in image processing applications such that hardware resources are efficiently utilized and at the same time ensure high image processing performance for the targeted application. Results show that the rVEX softcore processor can achieve remarkably better performance compared to the industry-standard Xilinx MicroBlaze (up to a factor of 3.2 times faster) on image processing applications.
