In this paper, a SystemC-based hardware/software co-design methodology for embedded image processing system is presented. With the development of the IC process, traditional design methodologies cannot meet the requirement of complex digital image processing systems. Hardware/software co-design is the new solution for designing embedded system. SystemC is promoted by the Open SystemC Initiative, which provides a well-defined set of C++ classes to accurately describe hardware; C++ can be chosen to describe both hardware and software throughout the whole design flow to support hardware/software co-design. SystemC can provide co-design platform for an embedded image processing system.
