Hardware/Software Design Partition.

When designing a sub-system we must choose what to have as hardware, what to have as software and whether custom or standard processors are needed.

When designing the complete SoC we must think about sharing of sub-system load over processors. .par Example: if we are designing a digital camera, how many processors should it have and can the steadicam and motion estimation processing be done in software ?
