This paper describes a system design framework for SoC that allows to model together the functional application, the hardware architecture and the embedded software. It relies on a commercial CASE tool that provides a graphical design entry by the UML, we added code generation capabilities to produce an executable model based on SystemC and introduced a reverse engineering flow. We use UML as higher system-level language; it works in synergy with lower level implementation languages: C/C++ and… CONTINUE READING
