In this paper we present the intra-function dynamic estimation step of our system-level design space exploration tool. The aim of our global methodology is to fill the gap between system specification and the tasks of the system design flow to converge towards an efficient system on chip architecture for multimedia applications. In this context, the intra-function estimation step rapidly provides for each functional block of the specification, trade-off curves which represent a large set of parallelism options for both data-transfer and processing resources. A set of methods used to achieve this estimation process is detailed.
