Certain application areas of signal processing and machine learning, such as robotics, impose technical limitations on the computing hardware, which make the use of generic processors unfeasible. In this paper we propose a framework for the development of dataflow accelerators as a possible solution. The approach is based on model based development and code generation to allow a rapid development of the accelerators and perform a functional verification of the overall system.
