Paper Abstract

An image processing software architecture developed and implemented for a medium-grain parallel machine is described. A machine with medium-grain parallelism is one that contains multiple processors connected by a high-bandwidth data path. Issues addressed were how to split up the image for processing and with what granularity, how to assign tasks to an arbitrary number of processors, how to coordinate the execution of the processors, and how to perform processing which requires global information about the image (for example, an image histogram). Details of the architecture, design trade-offs, and issues encountered during implementation are presented.
