The multimedia video processor (MVP) architecture, which incorporates a variety of parallel processing techniques to deliver very high performance to a wide range of imaging and graphics applications, is described. The MVP combines, on a single semiconductor chip, multiple fully programmable processors with multiple data streams connected to shared RAMs through a crossbar network. Each of the independent processors can execute many operations in parallel every cycle. The architecture is scalable and supports different numbers of processors to meet the cost and performance requirements of different markets. MVP's target environment and the development of MVP are outlined.<>
