Abstract: This paper describes work on the development of a scheme for implementation
of low power high performance Digital Signal Processing intensive AMBA
based System-On-Chip platforms. The scheme is based on a novel interfacing
scheme which utilises the bus hierarchy within AMBA in order to allow single
and multiple high performance DSP Intellectual Property cores to be
integrated into the SoC platform. The paper describes the overall AMBA SoC
architecture, the integration scheme, and an SoC generic wrapper which allows
