A range of multithreaded architectures can be idealistic for multimedia applications. Such architectures may be a proper combination of different computing models. In this article, the design space of multithreaded architectures is introduced, and the Kyushu University Multimedia Processor on Datarol-II is described. It is also shown how a multithreaded architecture can be built in a short design cycle by using a commercial high-end microprocessor and easily programmable hardware devices.
