Recently, system designers are facing the challenge of developing systems that have diverse features, are more complex and more powerful, with less power consumption and reduced time to market. These contradictory constraints have forced technology providers to pursue design solutions that will allow design teams to meet the above design targets. In that(More)
MOSART project addresses two main challenges of prevailing architectures: (i) The global interconnect and memory bottleneck due to a single, globally shared memory with high access times and power consumption; (ii) The difficulties in programming heterogeneous, multi-core platforms MOSART aims to overcome these through a multi-core architecture with(More)

The main obstacle for the wide acceptance of UML and SysML in the design of electronic systems is due to a major gap in the design flow between UML-based modeling and SystemC-based verification. To overcome this gap, we present an approach developed in the SATURN project which introduces UML profiles for the co-modeling of SystemC and C with code generation(More)
The mapping process of high performance embedded applications to today’s reconfigurable multiprocessor System-on-Chip devices suffers from a complex toolchain and programming process. Thus, the efficient programming of such architectures in terms of achievable performance and power consumption is limited to experts only. Enabling them to nonexperts requires(More)
As embedded systems are becoming the center of our digital life, system design becomes progressively harder. The integration of multiple features on devices with limited resources requires careful and exhaustive exploration of the design search space in order to efficiently map modern applications to an embedded multi-processor platform. The MNEMEE project(More)
The mapping process of high performance embedded applications to today's multiprocessor system on chip devices suffers from a complex tool chain and programming process. The problem here is the expression of parallelism with a pure imperative programming language which is commonly C. This traditional approach limits the mapping, partitioning and the(More)
In this paper, we present an "Asymmetric Passive Optical Network for xDSL and FTTH Access" (PANDA) architecture that is suitable for providing end-users with broadband connections in a cost-effective and non-disruptive fashion. We first describe the need for expanding the current ADSL access to VDSL (and ultimately FTTH), as well as the network upgrades(More)
This paper presents a novel approach for designing embedded reconfigurable systems. It presents the MORPHEUS reconfigurable platform and associated toolset and how they can be used in practice for the development of advanced reconfigurable systems. The paper presents also implementation results from three different application domains and exhibits how(More)
