Current multimedia applications give birth to a I number of complex heterogeneous multiprocessor architectures with specific communication infrastructure designed to achieve their demanding requirements. To obtain higher computational power with these multi-processor system on chips (MPSoCs), it is possible to connect several of them together through a specific network fabric, supported by dedicated network processors, reaching complexity levels too high for the general application programmer to cope with. This paper describes a flexible and efficient software implementation of communication mechanisms for such architectures, which masks the complexity of the communication infrastructure to the application programmer.
