Paper Abstract

In a short period of time, the multimedia sector has quickly progressed trying to overcome the exigencies of the customers in terms of transfer speeds, storage memory, image quality, and functionalities. In order to cope with this stringent situation, different hardware devices have been developed as possible choices. Despite of the fact that not every device is apt for implementing the high computational demands associated to multimedia applications; reconfigurable architectures appear as ideal candidates to achieve these necessities. As a direct consequence, worldwide universities and industries have incremented their research activity into this area, generating an important know-how base. In order to sort all the information generated about this issue, this paper reviews the most recent reconfigurable architectures for multimedia applications. As a result, this paper establishes the benefits and drawbacks of the different dynamically reconfigurable architectures for multimedia applications according to their system-level design.
