This book provides a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art, data flow-based techniques for the analysis, modeling and mapping technologies of concurrent applications on multi-processors. The authors present a flow for designing embedded hard/firm real-time multiprocessor streaming applications, based on data flow formalisms, with a particular focus on wireless modem applications. Architectures are described for the design tools and run-time scheduling and resource management of such a platform. ? Provides a comprehensive overview of the complete design trajectory, based on data flow programming and analysis for multiprocessor systems; ? Describes modeling techniques, with an emphasis on different data flow models for budget schedulers and the modeling of different schedulers; ? Discusses other relevant data-flow models of computation, such as cyclo-static data flow and variable-rate data flow; ? Includes other analysis and scheduling techniques, such as simulation-based throughput analysis and scenario-aware data flow analysis.
