Abstract:The design of multimedia systems is becoming a more and more challenging task due to the combination of
growing functionalities and strict performance requirements along with reduced time-to-market. In this
context, the OpenMAX initiative defines a standard interface for the development and interconnection of
HW and SW multimedia components. However, the simulation and implementation steps required to
obtain the final prototypes of such complex systems are still a challenge.
To solve these problems, this paper presents a framework which enables automatic code generation from
high-level UML/MARTE models. SystemC and VHDL codes are synthesized according to the OpenMAX
specification requirements and they are integrated with the application SW, derived from task-based
systems models. The generation of the SystemC executable specification enables easy simulation and
verification of multimedia systems. After this verification stage, the framework automatically provides the
VHDL code which feeds the final implementation and synthesis stage for the target platform.
To demonstrate this approach, a SOBEL-based use case has been implemented with the developed
framework.
