Hi Thomas,
First of all, thanks a lot for the quick response.

our custom hardware does encoding, decoding, different effects and
mixing at the hardware level in an efficient way. we have decided to
have different elements for all decoders, encoders, mixer and other
we can make use of our hardware efficiently, when it is known two of
our custom elements are connected together. in this case the data flow
will be
handled internally in the hardware. so that no need of pushing data
from one element to another element.
can i create a custom interface for the internal use of our own
elements or is there any effiecient to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance,
A. Thirupathi Reddy
