Abstract: Current emerging embedded System-on-Chip platforms are increasingly
becoming multiprocessor architectures. System designers experience
significant difficulties in programming these platforms. The
applications are typically specified as sequential programs that do
not reveal the available parallelism in an application, thereby
hindering the efficient mapping of an application onto a parallel
multiprocessor platform. In this paper we present our compiler
techniques for facilitating the migration from a sequential
application specification to a {\em parallel\/} application
specification using the Process Network model of computation. Our
work is inspired by a previous research project called Compaan. With
our techniques we address optimization issues such as the generation
of Process Networks with simplified topology and communication
without sacrificing the Process Networks' performance. Moreover, we
describe a technique for compile-time memory requirement estimation
which we consider as an important contribution of this paper. We
demonstrate the usefulness of our techniques on several examples.
