System-level simulation and design space exploration (DSE) are key ingredients for the design of multiprocessor system-on-chip (MP-SoC) based embedded systems. The efforts in this area, however, typically use ad-hoc software infrastructures to facilitate and support the system-level DSE experiments. In this paper, we present a new, generic system-level(More)
In this article, we present a flexible and extensible system-level MP-SoC design space exploration (DSE) infrastructure, called NASA. This highly modular framework uses well-defined interfaces to easily integrate different system-level simulation tools as well as different combinations of search strategies in a simple plug-and-play fashion. Moreover, NASA(More)
In this paper, we present the strategy for evaluating the performance of a variety of configurations of an architecture template for a computer vision system (CVS). For this study a generic model of an architecture is used to address the modular design of the CVS. This modular nature approach could be used to build a more complex system by integrating(More)
In this paper, we present a two-phase design space exploration (DSE) approach to address the problem of real-time application mapping on a flexible MPSoC platform. Our approach is composed of two independent phases – analytical estimation/pruning and system simulation – communicating via a well-defined interface. The strength of the resulting strategy is(More)
