Through tailoring individual core to best fit dedicated applications, heterogeneous multi-core architectures can maximise performance while mitigating area costs and power consumption. This paper introduces heterogeneous multi-core architectures using coarse-grained dynamically reconfigurable processors. The multi-core system has been tailored for the performance intensive WiMAX transmitter. An exploration algorithm is proposed to search the design space for multi-core systems to find suitable solutions under specific system and performance constraints.
