Embedded memory plays a critical role to improve performances of systems-on-chip (SoC). In this paper, we present a new methodology for embedded memory design in the case of application specific multiprocessor system-on-chip. This approach facilitates the integration of standard memory components. The concept of memory wrapper allows automatic adaptation of physical memory interfaces to a communication network that may have a different number of access ports. We give also a generic architecture to produce this memory wrapper. This approach has successfully been applied on a low-level image processing application.
