The Long Term Evolution (LTE) radio communication is the upgrade of the current 3G mobile technology with a more complex protocol in order to enable very high data rates. The usage of Model Driven Development (MDD) has arisen as a promising way of dealing with the increasing complexity of next generation mobile protocols. In this paper, a light version of… (More)
In this paper we present a new hardware/software co-design methodology for embedded systems, where software components written in Specification and Description Language (SDL) execute on a soft-model of a hardware platform, a so called Virtual Prototype (VP). The proposed approach enables fast exploration of different hardware and software design options at… (More)
Purpose of this study-Recently, several technologies for future smartphones based on virtualization have been emerging. One open source approach supported by the EU, called eMuCo, combines embedded virtualization and multi-core architectures. The eMuCo embedded virtualization software platform is based on a microkernel which is accompanied by a flexible… (More)
On the other hand, system scalability and flexibility are vital to enable fast time-to-market and allow manufacturers and service providers to be competitive. Use of virtualization techniques and software development to scalable parallel hardware architectures are inevitable outcome to face the migration to multi-core platforms on mobile devices.
