ABSTRACT
<p>Commercial multicore platforms offer flexibility, computational power, and energy efficiency. However, a key open issue remains: how can designers quickly and efficiently map an application onto such a platform while profiting from the potential benefits? This article presents a tool to parallelize applications for execution on embedded multicore platforms, allowing fast design space exploration.</p>
INDEX TERMS
multicore, parallelization, tool, exploration, application mapping
