The increase of the wireless networks has created a significant growth in demand for portable devices with different types of services such as text processing, connectivity to different networks, remote data base access and multimedia processing. In order to respond to these requirements, a number of different hardware architectures have been proposed recently, designed principally to integrate useful characteristics such as high performance for multimedia functions, energy efficient handling, small size and a low complexity. This work presents a general analysis of several architectures designed principally for real time multimedia processing in mobile applications. This article describes the advantages of these architectures and raises comparison strategy among them.
