Dynamic Partial Reconfiguration (DPR) is a promising technology ready for use, enabling the design of more flexible and efficient systems. However, existing design flows for DPR are either low-level and complex or lack support for automatic synthesis. In this paper, we present a SystemC based modelling and synthesis flow using the OSSS+R framework for(More)
Today's heterogeneous embedded systems combine components from different domains, such as software, analogue hardware and digital hardware. The design and implementation of these systems is still a complex and error-prone task due to the different Models of Computations (MoCs), design languages and tools associated with each of the domains. Though making(More)
Recent additions to the system modelling language SystemC, namely SystemC-AMS and OSCI TLM 2.0, provide more efficient ways to model systems within their respective domains. However, most of today's embedded systems are usually heterogeneous, requiring some way to connect and simulate models from different domains. In this paper we present a first approach(More)
We propose a novel design estimation method for adaptive streaming applications to be implemented on a partially reconfigurable FPGA. Based on experimental results we enable accurate design cost estimates at an early design stage. Given the size and computation time of a set of configurations, which can be derived through logic synthesis, our method gives(More)
—Cost efficient design of embedded HW/SW systems that need to meet certain requirements is a complex task due to the huge number of possible solutions, the " design space ". Design space exploration methods depend on the designers' input in terms of application description, target architecture, and cost estimates for implementation alternatives. Obtaining(More)
