Abstract

Platform based design requires to restrict the number of possible design choices in order to make it possible to come up with programmable solutions able to cope with the current complexity of System-On-Chip (SoC) designs. Nowadays there is a general consensus toward the fact that an effective Electronic System Level (ESL) design methodology must provide a specific support for platform specification, hardware/software partitioning and programmatic interfaces synthesis in order to allow designers to exploit the potentials of state-of-the-art technologies. In this work we present a methodology that leverages on UML for building new architectural platforms to be used to be used in the system design process. We show how our methodology can allow to reuse pre-designed platforms by adding new architectural components and by customizing their interconnections
