Automated Design Space Exploration on System Level for Embedded Systems

  title={Automated Design Space Exploration on System Level for Embedded Systems},
  author={Achim Rettberg and Wolfram Hardt and Jrgen Teich and Marcus Bednara},
The design of embedded systems has to address several interacting design dimensions to implement parallelism, distribution over different locations, hard real-time requirements and design space exploration today. Thus a structured design process has to deal with heterogeneous requirements and restrictions. The integration of dedicated tasks for HW-design and SW-design as well as real-time operating system functionality into the embedded system design flow is the main challenge. On system level… 

The Specification Language SpecC within the PARADISE Design Environment

This paper describes how system specification and refinement is covered in combination with the processes available in PARADISE, and an example of an adequate specification and modeling language is considered and adapted for integration intoPARADISE.

Using Activation Intervals for Low Power Analysis

A new approach to integrate low power methods in a design on architectural level by starting from an asynchronous architecture presented as a data-flow graph, and an activation interval analysis is conducted.

A fast asynchronous re-configurable architecture for multimedia applications

A fast re-configurable asynchronous architecture for multimedia applications that reflects the data-flow characteristics of such multimedia applications and first simulation results of VHDL models show, the effectiveness of the approach.

How to integrate Webservices in Embedded System Design?

This paper presents an approach to exploit webservices technology in the field of embedded system design and its effects on the domain of the electronic design automation (EDA) have to be considered and their validity shown.



The Paradise Design Environment

The design of embedded systems (ES) has to address several interacting design dimensions to implement parallelism, distribution over different locations, and hard real-time (RT) requirements, which leads to systems with enormous overall complexity.

An automated approach to HW/SW-codesign (Hardware/software partitioning)

A pipelined interface for HW/SW partitioning is developed using the features of the target architecture and it has been pointed out that the efficiency of embedded systems is dramatically influenced by the interface between HW- and SW.

The Design of Embedded Real-Time Systems using the SEA Environment

This paper proposes extended Predicate/Transition Nets (Pr/T{Nets), that have been enlarged so that complete models of complex embedded real-time systems, including continuous, discrete and interface parts, can be captured.

Towards a complete design method for embedded systems using predicate/transition-nets

A new approach to embedded system design based on modeling discrete and also continuous system parts with high level Petri—Nets and their meaning for hardware/software partitioning of real-time embedded systems is presented.

The SEA Language for System Engineering and Animation

The hierarchical, graphical SEA Language is described, which allows to easily incorporate several user defined or standardized graphical symbols and their behaviour and a unified semantic basis for different graphical specification formalisms/techniques can be provided.

System Modelling with High-Level Petri Nets

System-Level Synthesis Using Evolutionary Algorithms

A model is introduced that handles all mentioned requirements and allows the task of system-synthesis to be specified as an optimization problem and the application and adaptation of an Evolutionary Algorithm to solve the tasks of optimization and design space exploration.
