OpenDF – A Dataﬂow Toolset for Reconﬁgurable Hardware and Multicore Systems
This paper presents the OpenDF framework and recalls that dataﬂow programming was once invented to address the problem of parallel computing. We discuss the problems with an imperative style, von Neumann programs,and present what we believe are the advantages of using a brieﬂy presented and its role in the ISO/MPEG standard is discussed. The Dataﬂow Interchange Format (DIF) and related tools can be used for analysis of actors and networks,demonstrating the advantages of a dataﬂow approach. Finally, an overview of a case study implementing an MPEG-4 decoder is given.
