Hi all,

During the design of embedded vision systems, we are often faced to the HW/SW partitioning dilema. By HW/SW partitioning, I mean which part of my algorithm do I implement on co-processor (HW) and which part on processor (SW).

Sometimes, it is easy to take this decision. However, for complex algorithms, there is need for profiling.

So, I have 2 questions:

1) Which tool do you use to perform this profiling task ?

2) Why do you use this tool compared to the others ?
