SoC drawer: SoC design for hardware acceleration

IBM RSS feed Power Arch writes "In the SoC design for hardware acceleration series, author Sam Siewert migrates a simple C function to a SystemC specification that can be simulated and verified for ultimate implementation as a hardware function. Part 1 provided the C code and a general overview of video capture, streaming, and processing. Part 2 shows how hardware acceleration of emergent applications, such as video streaming, can benefit from system-on-chip (SoC) design and reconfigurable SoCs with hybrid C software and field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based functionality.
